Creamy Chicken Vegetable Soup

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.

    I used wild rice instead of white rice which took a little longer to cook - but it added a different dimension to the recipe. We topped it with grated cheddar cheese. Definitely a keeper. The whole family liked it.

    This was wonderful! best soup I've ever made. I did omit the zucchini and add brocolli. Yummy! I also added some cheddar cheese to it. This recipe is awesome!

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

    Best soup I've ever made! It took some time but it was well worth the effort. We ate it all in one night and have plans to make another pot tomorrow! I changed and added some veggies for personal prefernce (omitted carrots, added mushrooms, onions, green peppers). Hint: use fresh parley at the end for a great taste!
