Creamy Chicken Soup

Creamy Chicken Soup Recipe - chicken, celery, carrots, mushrooms, chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, half-and-half and cheese! Can use rotisserie chicken for a super quick meal or boneless chicken breasts for an easy slow cooker meal. Freeze leftovers for a quick meal later!

I got this recipe from my Mom. She always has recipes for me to look at when I go down and visit. This soup caught my eye. It is loaded with chicken, mushrooms, carrots, celery and finished off with some cheese and half-and-half. It is super delicious. If you aren't a mushroom fan, feel free to leave them out. It will be just as good without them.

I made this in the slow cooker. If you want a super quick stovetop meal, use some cooked chopped chicken instead of uncooked chicken breasts. I like to use rotisserie chickens for the cooked chicken. Bring the first 8 ingredients to a boil and boil for about 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to simmer and add the remaining ingredients. Cook for a few minutes more and serve.

This makes a ton of soup. It is great for a crowd or a freezer meal later. I made a batch of this last week before my Paris trip. I froze the leftover so he could eat it while I'm gone this week. I love these  GladWare Soup Containershttp://amzn.to/1ixvtXS. They work great for individual servings.
