Chicken Chowder Soup

Another recipe from Sarah Parks. So good!

3 c shredded chicken breast (I like to do broccoli instead of chicken)
3 cubes chicken bouillon
1 c diced potato
1 c chopped celery
1 c chopped onion
2 bouillon cubes
¾ c butter
¾ c flour
1 quart half & half
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
dash of pepper

Boil chicken with the 3 bouillon cubes (if using broccoli, add towards the end, cook long enough to make soft). Take cooked chicken out of water, shred, and set aside.

Boil the potatoes in chicken water until almost cooked, add celery and onion. Cook until tender. Drain the vegetables from water, saving the water (stock). Set vegetables and water aside separately.

In soup pot combine the 2 chicken bouillon cubes with the butter. Melt the butter and dissolve/smash the bouillon cubes. Add flour and cook for 3-5 minutes on a medium low heat and thicken it to a light brown paste.

Add half & half, sugar, salt, and pepper. Bring to a light boil then add chicken and vegetables and thin to desired consistency with soup stock from above.
