With our crazy weather, many days lately have been "Soup Days". You know those days, don't you? When you are thinking about what you would taste good, soup is what comes to mind. So I was really excited when I was checking out the new Amish cookbook Friend Jean found for me, and saw several soups that looked interesting.

This recipe for Chicken Chowder was contributed by Ella Miller of Fresno, OH in Wanda E. Brunstetter's Amish Friends Cookbook.  I followed the recipe exactly, but as Wayne and I were enjoying our first bowl, we both agreed it would probably be a good way to use some leftover turkey after Turkey Day. I cooked one chicken breast and it was just a little over 1-1/2 cups cut up. I just added the last few cubes.

2         tablespoons butter
1/4      cup chopped onion
1-1/2   cups cubed cooked chicken
1-1/2   cups diced carrots
1-1/2   cups diced carrots
1-1/2   cups diced raw potatoes
2         chicken bouillon cubes
1         teaspoon salt
1/8      teaspoon pepper
2         cups water
3         tablespoons flour
2-1/2   cups milk

Melt butter in 3 - quart saucepan. (I used a stock pot.) Add onions and saute until tender.
Add chicken,
bouillon cubes, salt, pepper, and water.
Cover and simmer until
vegetables are tender.
Combine flour and 1/2 cup milk in a jar with a lid.
Shake until blended.
Add to vegetables along with remaining 2 cups milk.
Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly,
until mixture thickens. 

Yields 1-3/4 quarts.

I hope your Thanksgiving was blessed. We enjoyed turkey with our MO family and then our two families Facetimed with each other. So good seeing the CO family while with the MO family.
