Ingredients
  1. 1 stick OR 8 tbs butter
  2. 8 tbs all purpose flour
  3. 8 cups of milk
  4. 2 boneless, skinless cooked chicken breasts
  5. 1 1/2 cups cooked rice
  6. 1 home canned jar of sliced carrots OR 1 store bought can
  7. 1/2 chopped small onion
to taste
  1. salt
  2. pepper
  3. sweet basil
  4. chives
  5. parsley flakes
Instructions
  1. I start by throwing a couple of chicken breasts into my crock pot in the morning. Allow them to cook throughout the day. This will make throwing together this soup, super easy!
  2. Start by making a rue.
  3. Add your butter to a heavy bottomed dutch oven pot. Melt over med/low heat.
  4. Once melted, add chopped onions and cook until translucent.
  5. Add flour and stir vigorously using a wire whisk. Cook the flour for about 30 seconds.
  6. Slowly begin to add your milk. Whisk in between adds. I add 1 cup of milk at a time.... whisking well to make sure you eliminate any lumps.
  7. Once all combined, begin adding in your seasonings. I add a LOT! About 4 tbs sweet basil, 2 tbs parsley, 4 tbs chives, and salt & pepper until it tastes just right. I am really bad at measuring, and everyone's tastes are different.... so start with a little and add from there until you get the seasoning YOU like.
  8. Continue to whisk and stir and bring your soup to a boil.
  9. Once it boils, reduce heat to low.
  10. Add carrots and chicken.
  11. Simmer on low until hot and ready, usually about 10 minutes or so.
  12. Serve and Enjoy!
