Soups on!

My friend Drew so nicely reminded me that my blog has been LAME lately...thanks Drew! So, for lack of better posting material, try a new recipe! I actually got this out of American Profile and it was YUM! Try it and let me know what you think!

Cheesy Chicken Chowder

2 (14 oz) cans reduced sodium chicken broth
2 cups diced, peeled potatoes
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced onion
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup flour
2 cups milk
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (I used sharp!)
2 cups diced or shredded cooked chicken

Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a large saucepan and reduce heat. Add potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, salt and pepper (and other seasonings as you wish). Cover and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.

Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add flour and mix well. Gradually stir in milk and cook on low heat until slightly thickened. Stir in cheese and cook until melted (just a few minutes) Add cheese mixture to broth and add chicken. Cook and stir over low heat until heat and enjoy!
