Cream of Chicken soup for Soup Lovers
January weather is freezing cold and windy in almost all areas of North America especially North east.Even in Dallas,North Texas its bit cold for the last 2 weeks. This is the perfect time for having a bowl of warm soup at any time of the day for getting more energy and immunity in winter.At this time if any one gives a warm soup in a bowl,no body says No..Isn't..Yes,that's the truth and yesterday i made this cream of chicken soup using simple ingredients.I didn't use butter or heavy cream for cream consistency.Its simply by adding an egg.By adding a whole egg to the hot chicken with lit corn flour gives you a cream consistency and we can call it as cream of chicken soup even though i didn't add any cream....Soup is healthy always and i like to make without any extra fat like butter or heavy cream...Actually i tried to make egg drop soup,but co incidentally the soup becomes cream soup...lol..
So i thought to share the recipe with you all.Its so simple can be prepare within 10-15 min.
I'm a big soup lover and i tried Knor soup all the time and this i have tried with my own soup recipe and it came out good and my tester,my loving husband gives me the green signal.So now the recipe is all for you my fellow readers.
