Recipe by Amy Duchesne
Chicken or turkey, celery, carrots, potatoes, onion in a homemade creamy stock. Remove the meat and go vegetarian! I made this recipe up and I love it. It tastes good at any time of the day and for any meal in any season.

I made this recipe tonight and it was excellent. I deboned a whole chicken thinking maybe it would be to much meat but it wasn't! I added enough stock to cover the chicken and vegetables, but I should have added more. I also added 2 cubes of beef bouillon to give it a little more flavor. This was truly awesome. I served mine over biscuit's.
- 6 chicken thighs
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 3 large carrots (peeled and cubed or sliced in circular form)
- 1 large onion, diced
- 5 medium potatoes, cubed
- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 1⁄4 cup margarine or 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1⁄3 cup concentrated beef bouillon
