It is getting colder and colder everyday which makes it the perfect time to make soup! I love making soup and wanted to tackle making my husbands favorite. I had never made Broccoli Cheddar before and decided that last night would be a good night to try!
I could not find an easy Broccoli Cheddar soup recipe to save my life! So I had to combine two different recipes and came up with this!
Chicken Broccoli & Cheddar Soup
3 boiled & shredded chicken breast
1 32oz bag of Broccoli Florettes
1 1/2c cheddar shredded
1 1/2c velveta cheese cubed
1 1/2c mozzarella shredded
1/2 c Parmesan cheese
2 1/2c chicken broth
2 1/2c milk
4Tbs instant potatoes
2 Tbs chopped dried onion
2 tsp granulated garlic
Spray with cooking spray large pot. Add in Dried onion, garlic, broccoli, chicken broth & shredded chicken. Bring to a boil till broccoli is tender and remove from heat. Remove 2/3 of mixture and puree in blender and add back to pot.
On the side warm milk in microwave in a med size bowl for abt 1 min. Whisk in one Tbs at a time dried mashed potatoes & flour into warm milk.
Add milk mixture to soup and bring to boil for 1 min. Add in cheeses & Stir frequently.
Once cheese has melted add in pepper to taste and serve!
