Perfect timing! We're enjoying our first snowfall of the season and what better to come home to (Carly was playing in the snow) than a mug of hot chicken soup. I first poached my chicken in the stock then proceeded with your directions. This is rich, creamy, and going into my permanent files. TFS, made for the Beverage Tag cooking game.
