Rich Cream of Chicken Soup With Vegetables

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Chicagoland Chef du

I have made this a couple times now and it's time to make it again! From "The Big Book of Soups & Stews". I have used FF half and half and it turned out well.

I loved this. I added zucchini with the mushrooms and used a mix of half and half and milk. I plan on making it again this weekend! Thanks Chicagoland!!
