Broccoli Cheese Soup with Chicken is the perfect fall lunch or easy dinner recipe.

Bowl of broccoli cheese soup with chicken is the perfect cold weather recipe.

The cold weather is starting to creep back in and that means it’s time for one of my favourite foods.

Soup.

I love pretty much ever kind of soup there is but broccoli cheese is one my favourites.

For this Broccoli Cheese Soup with Chicken I started by cooking some diced onions in butter in a large pot.

I stirred in some flour and allowed it to cook, stirring occasionally.

Then I poured in some milk and water, stirring well.

At this point I dumped in some herb and garlic cream cheese and then increased the heat.

I used a fork to break apart some canned chicken and added it to the soup.

I know broccoli cheese soup doesn’t normally have chicken but I love chicken in soup.

I added broccoli florets and chicken soup base and then left the soup to cook for about fifteen minutes, stirring occasionally.

I removed the soup from the heat and stirred in three cups of grated cheddar cheese.

I used mild cheddar but you could use a stronger cheese if you prefer.

I left the soup to cool for about five minutes before serving.
