Chicken and Broccoli Cheese Soup Recipe

This soup has quickly become a family favorite. I wanted to make this soup for two reasons:

1. I love cheese soup, but my husband doesn’t think of it as a “meal” because it’s missing meat. So, I thought that chicken would make an awesome addition!
2. I wanted to try and make a cheese soup minus Velveeta. Don’t get me wrong- I love Velveeta and am not against using it, but I wanted to try and attempt something from scratch.

This soup went above and beyond my greatest expectations- it was cheesy, hearty, warm, and delicious. You can’t go wrong with it!

    1. Thanks so much for the recipe! I'm going to try it tonight. My sister says, "You always are making new recipes." It's true, because I love trying your recipes and usually have everything in the house to make your new ones. Biggest hits so far were your sweet and sour chicken, ranch chicken taquito recipe, and cheesy vegetable soup. My kids are flexible so they please everyone.
    2. hi there- love you blog/recipes, etc.... I am wheat intolerant, what would you replace the flour with in this recipe? There is a whole cup which is a lot for any other thickener, just wondering if you had any thoughts. I love Broccoli Cheese Soup, but it's been a long time. Warmly, Barb
    3. I just made this soup on this cold, snowy Sunday. It was incredibly good! I was a little worried about how it would turn out as my roux was a little clumpy, but I could not have been more impressed. I plan on making this recipe again and again, thank you so much ladies!
    4. Im sick today and all I want is some broccoli and cheese soup. I didnt feel like making it but its so easy. I used frozen broccoli and frozen diced chicken so it only took maybe 30 minutes to put together which was awesome. I added way more cheese and I used a gluten free flour and it turned out great, I was worried about using the whole cup of flour but it turned out just right. I also always spice things a little more than directed. Always to taste. It was a fast and delicious soup.

      I just thought I'd get back on here tonight to tell you that I made this for dinner & it was THE BEST broccoli soup I've ever had & the 1st I've ever made! I loved the kick the cayenne pepper gave & the how hearty the chicken made the soup. It was double awesome because I was able to feed 8 people & still have some leftovers, which I will enjoy for my lunch tomorrow! :) The 8 people consisted of 4 adults (2 of which are starving college aged boys) & 4 children. We enjoyed it with French bread & a small salad. Talk about a hit! Thank you, Julie
