I have a similar recipe which I could not find, so I tried this version and it was delicious.

CHEESY CHICKEN CHOWDER

1 TBS olive oil

2 cups diced potatoes (red are my favorite and I don’t bother to peel them)

1 cup diced carrots

1 cup diced celery

1/2 cup diced onion

3 cups chicken broth

1/4 cup butter

1/3 cup flour

2 cups milk

8 oz. sharp cheddar, shredded

2 cups cooked, diced chicken (I used rotisserie from my grocery store)

1 TBS Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp. salt

pepper to taste

Directions

  1. In a 4-quart saucepan, heat oil and saute onion until translucent.  Add the potatoes, carrots, celery, and broth.  Bring to a boil.  Cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium saucepan; stir in flour until smooth.  Gradually stir in milk.  Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.  Reduce heat; add cheese, stirring until melted.  Add cheese sauce to soup.  Add Worcestershire, salt and pepper to taste.  Heated through and serve.
