READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

This is great for a cold winter night. Use a good canned or homemade chicken broth. I sometimes use a store bought rotisserie chicken, which adds another dimension to the flavor.

This turned out great. I used regular 2% milk and it was nice and creamy. The zucchini was an interesting ingredient.
