Easy Mac and Cheese Soup w/ Chicken and Broccoli
I have the best Mac and Cheese Soup recipe (with broccoli and chicken) to share with you today. The recipe is good timing since it looks like we’re in for at least one more polar blast before winter is through with us. We were in the 80’s this weekend but, with this next front, we’ll be lucky if Wednesday’s highs get much above freezing.
Perfect weather for soup!
My kids love mac and cheese. (Oh, who am I kidding, I love mac and cheese too!) And when it’s cold outside there’s nothing better than a hearty bowl of this Easy Mac and Cheese Soup with Broccoli and Chicken.
Looks yummy, doesn’t it? This soup is so easy, it comes together in very little time, with just a few items from your pantry and fridge/freezer.
Can I Leave Out the Broccoli in this Mac and Cheese Soup?
Of course! This soup is just as good without broccoli and the kids will probably appreciate it more anyway, lol. (If you are worried about the children not eating veggies, this would be a great recipe to sneak in some pureed squash or other light, bland veggie.
If you make this recipe, be sure to come back and let us know how it turned out!Print
