This is a recipe out of my grandmother's cookbook. It is a lovely creamy soup with lots of chickeny-goodness. I have no idea how much it makes and she can't remember either, so I'll have to guess. Also, by setting the milk and cream out a little while before preparing this soup and letting it come closer to room temperature, you can avoid lumps.

  1. Melt butter in a pot and whisk in flour.
  2. Mix together the milk, cream, and chicken broth.
  3. Pour it in the pot in small amounts, letting the mixture warm and whisking continuously to keep the flour from lumping.
  4. Keep whisking until it is creamy.
  5. Add in the chicken and carrots (if desired),
  6. stir again and serve.
