Prepare the Vegetables (Optional): If using vegetables, sauté them in butter in a large pot until softened. This step adds extra flavor and texture to the soup.

Make the Roux: In the same pot, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in all-purpose flour until smooth, cooking for 1-2 minutes until the mixture turns golden brown and smells nutty. This creates the base for the creamy soup.

Arrow

Add Broth and Milk: Gradually whisk in chicken broth and milk, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until thickened, stirring occasionally.

Arrow

Add Chicken: Once the soup has thickened, add diced cooked chicken to the pot. Stir to combine and heat through.

Arrow

Season to Taste: Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. You can also add herbs and spices like thyme, parsley, or garlic powder for extra flavor.

Arrow

Serve or Condense: At this point, you can serve the soup as is for a delicious Cream of Chicken Soup. If you want to make condensed soup for future use in recipes, continue cooking until the soup reduces and thickens further.
