Cream of Chicken Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Elmotoo

Developed for RSC#11. This soup knocked my socks off. I made more soon after finishing batch #1. It's so creamy - thickened with a roux and topped off with cream. The shallots & white wine make it refined & lovely while the cayenne gives it a nice kick. All while being creamy, dreamy comfort food. It's quick & easy, too. What more could you want??

4 Star - I chose this recipe because I had two cooked chicken breast in the fridge. I ate it on a day were it was getting cool after a hot humid summer day. It really hit the spot, the taste was great, I thought the white wine slightly overpowers the flavour but overall it was really nice. The directions for this soup was simple and easy to read. Thank you RSC #11 Chef
