Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Soup

SERVES: 6 as a main course, 10 as an appetizer PREP: 20 minutes TOTAL TIME: 55 minutes

Bread bowls optional but encouraged!

This soup was originally called “everything soup” because it has all of my faves in one pot. I could have added a lot more stuff but it ended up being mostly broccoli-cheddar with ranch seasoning (use our Ranchiest Ranch popcorn seasoning or a ranch packet!) and chicken to make it more hearty and comforting. It's soooo good as it is, but even better if you load it up into a bread bowl. Toast up all the bread you scoop out and you've got croutons or snacks for later!

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (about ¾ pound) or 2 rotisserie chicken breasts, shredded

  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt, plus more for seasoning

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning

  • 1 stick unsalted butter

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ cup flour

  • 3 cups half and half or whole milk

  • 3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth

  • 2 tablespoons Cravings Ranchiest Ranch seasoning or 1 (1-ounce) ranch dressing or dip packet

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 4 cups broccoli florets, finely chopped

  • 1 cup shredded carrots

  • 6 small, round loaves of bread—often labeled Baby Boule, about 8 ounces and 6" in diameter, and made of French bread or sourdough—for making bread bowls, optional
