“I wasn't feeling too well today and needed something simple, hearty and warm to perk me up and this is what I came up with! It's nice and creamy - a nice change from regular chicken noodle soup”

  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 large chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 12 cups noodles or 1 12 cups pasta, of your choice (I use egg noodles)
  • 1 12-2 cups diced vegetables (carrots, green beans, potatoes, rutabaga, onion, garlic, etc.)
