In saucepan, heat oil, add chicken and brown lightly.  Add remaining ingredients, except cream & Parmesan.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly for 1 minute.  Reduce heat, cover and let simmer over medium heat for 20-minutes.  Add half and half & Parmesan simmer 2-3 minutes; stirring constantly to make sure Parmesan doesn’t stick.

  1. How cozy it sounds over there! Soup and snow. Here it’s boiling hot. I always wish I could move to the better climate.

    • Hi Tes, I love following your adventures and I’m sure you guys would have fun here. We might have a big spring blizzard this weekend. Two feet of snow…or just lots of rain, they don’t know yet.
