Cheesy Chicken and Vegetable Soup
Thank you to the Cozy Country Living blog for this recipe for Cheesy Chicken and Vegetable Soup. This soup will fill every tummy in your family with a rich and satisfying as well as deeply nutritious meal. And, even though it looks like there is tons to do—especially with all the ingredients—this dish is almost more about assembling the veggies and meat and cheese as opposed to actually cooking anything. So this is a really simple soup, made delicious by the quality and variety of ingredients that you pull together to make it. Sundays are an excellent day to prepare a nice big pot of soup that can last you for the week. Save your glass jars from condiments as you go through them and they make for the perfect 'plastic free' to-go containers for all your soup recipes.
This dish uses plenty of veggies, and you can be glad to serve them to your family. The pot pourri of the vegetables makes this dish a colorful green, red, and white blend of taste and texture. What is not to love in that? The chicken can be one that you made and de-boned, or for added convenience and to make this even quicker, get the chicken from your grocer, pre-cooked. Either way, it will be delicious. The sharp cheddar cheese is added to chicken stock (your own, or buy it at the grocery store) and the whole thing is heated up to (not beyond) the boiling point.
Consider making fresh biscuits or cornmeal bread to serve with this delicious dish. When we were kids, we usually had peanut butter and jam sandwiches with this soup. That is a great choice, too, and will provide a very filling meal for all. Try this recipe soon. It is quick and easy to make, has loads of veggies for great nutrition, and tastes great with all the cheese that is loaded in to it. This recipe is a keeper.
