{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} Lemon-Chicken Velvet Soup Recipe


Lemon-Chicken Velvet Soup Recipe

The lively flavor of lemon perks up this rich, brothy soup accented with sugar snap peas. "I enjoy this soup with a green salad, sourdough bread and a glass of white wine," writes Celeste Buckley from Redding, California.


TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. 
MAKES: 2 servings


2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1-1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken breast
10 fresh or frozen sugar snap peas
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream


In a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add broth and lemon juice. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.

Stir in the chicken, peas, parsley and lemon peel; cook 2-3 minutes longer or until chicken is heated through and peas are crisp-tender. Stir in cream; heat through (do not boil). Yield: 2 servings.
