Yield 6-8 Serves

A comforting creamy chicken pasta soup with pasta, a homemade soup that is easy to make  and kid-friendly, a great family dinner

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Dice the onions and carrot
  2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan
  3. Add the onion and carrot and saute for approx 5 mins
  4. Add the flour and cook this off for 2 minutes, ensuring the veggies all get coates
  5. Add the stock and milk, bring the mix up to a simmer
  6. Dice the chicken (1cm cubes) Add the chicken and poach at a low simmer for 10 mins
  7. Add the uncooked pasta and cook for a few minutes less than the suggested cooking time (this will vary depending on the size and shape of pasta you are using) 
  8. Add the frozen peas, Check the consistency of the soup at this stage, if it has thickened more than you would like thin down with a little more stock. Cook for 1-2 minutes to ensure the peas are heated through
  9. Season with salt and pepper if needed
  10. Serve

Notes

  • The butter can be substituted for oil if you prefer
  • Celery can be added at the same stage as the carrots and onion (I dislike celery though)
  • Sliced button mushrooms are nice in this as well, I often add a handful of  them after the onions and carrot have had a few minutes to sauté but before the flour has been added
  • Personally I have not made this recipe with anything other than cows milk, but it should also work with alternative milks
