Cream Cheese Chicken Soup

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

This cream cheese chicken soup is a nice twist on the traditional chicken soup.  This soup includes veggies but no noodles.  You have your classic onions, carrots, and potatoes in here.

This soup does use cooked chicken so it’s a great way to utilize leftover chicken or is excellent to make with rotisserie chicken. I love to use rotisserie chicken. It is so tender and flavorful.

The base of this soup all begins with chicken broth. Then the creaminess comes milk, flour, and cream cheese. You can use any kind of milk, but skim will probably not get the thickness you want.  I use 2% milk.
