Simplifying Mealtime

With an 18 month old and a 2 1/2 month old making elaborate meals is about the last thing on my to do list. Not that our meals were ever very elaborate, but these days the simpler, the better.

I was reminded of this simple soup recipe when my friend Kristin posted about it a couple of months ago (see her post here). This is deliciously creamy soup that can be put together in about 20 minutes. As you can see we all really enjoyed it.


Cream Cheese Chicken Soup

1 small onion
1 T butter
3 c. chicken
broth
3 medium carrots, sliced (we didn't use these because Tim doesn't like
cooked carrots)
2 medium potatoes, cubed
2 c. cubed chicken
2 T parsley
s/p to taste
(we also added a little garlic salt)
1/4 c. flour or 2 T cornstarch
1 c. milk
8-oz. cream cheese

Sauté onion and butter. Add broth, carrots, and potatoes. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered. Simmer until veggies are tender. Add chicken, s/p, and parsley and heat through. Combine flour and milk until smooth. Add and bring to boil. Cook and stir until thick. Add cream cheese. Stir until smooth.

I have to follow a gluten free diet, but I think this might still be thick enough without the flour just using the cream cheese. I am going to try it or maybe use an alternative flour.

It looks great! Love your blog.
