Chicken and Vegetable Supper Soup

READY IN: 1hr
Recipe by Lavender Lynn

This recipe is from one of the best recipe books I have ever had, Favorite Recipes II from Sunset Magazine. Every recipe I have ever tried is great. I used some canned chicken broth and when I ran out, I used Better than Bouillon Chicken Base. It was delicious. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs.

Top Review by Boomette

This soup is great. I've never made a soup with a white sauce, rice and chicken. Usually I have that in restaurants. And this one is better than in restaurants. I used low-sodium chicken stock. I used 2 medium zucchini. Instead of 6 tbs of butter, I used only 3 tbs and used 3 tbs of water to combine with the flour. I thickened the sauce in the microwave. I used skim milk. I omitted the green onion. I used no-salt seasoning. Thanks Lynn :) Made for Please Review My Recipe
