  • 2 to 3 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 cup chopped green pepper can use red or orange, too, or all 3
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans chicken broth
  • 3 large potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 2 cups frozen or fresh broccoli pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 cups milk I use 2 per cent
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups shredded cheese I used cheddar. Can use what you like


  • In a large soup pot melt butter and brown onion, peppers, celery. Add the chicken broth, chicken, potatoes, broccoli, black pepper, salt, minced garlic and cumin and bring to boil.
  • Reduce heat to simmer and cook until potatoes are soft or about 10 to 12 minutes. Heat milk on stove or in microwave about 2 minutes, remove and whisk in flour until mixture is smooth. Add to your soup to thicken it. Add the cheese and continue cooking on low heat about 10 to 15 minutes.
