Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes Copycat Recipe

Serves 4

2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup sliced cooked carrot
2 cups cubed cooked potatoes
1 cup cooked green peas
6 tablespoons margarine
1/3 cup flour
2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
4 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

To begin, all ingredients should start out cooked (this helps prevent cream base from scorching). In sauce pan melt margarine or butter. Blend in flour, chicken bouillon, garlic and pepper. Cook until mixture is smooth and bubbly; gradually add milk. Cook and stir over medium heat till mixture boils, simmer one minute, stirring constantly. Add chicken and then each vegetable one at a time carefully so as not to break up other ingredients.
