Cream Cheese Chicken Soup

Anell made this soup for our Mother/Daughter Activity last night. It was so good! And since it remains a bit chilly around these parts, soup might just be the perfect solution to warm you up.

Cream Cheese Chicken Soup

1 small onion chopped
1 Tbsp butter
3 cups chicken broth
3 medium carrots sliced
2 medium potatoes peeled and cubed (I didn't peel mine)
2 cups cooked chicken
2 Tbsp minced parsley (I used dried parsley flakes)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/4 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese cubed

In a large saucepan, saute the onion in butter. Add broth, carrots and potatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add the chicken, parsley, salt and pepper and heat through. Combine flour and milk until smooth. Add to the vegetables, bringing to a boil. Cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat and add cream cheese. Stir and cook until melted.
