Asparagus Chicken Soup Recipe

Creamy Chicken and Asparagus Soup

This is an easy chicken soup recipe. It's a good one to have in your collection and especially if you need to make appetizers (hors d'oeuvres or starters) for an elegant function or dinner. It's so simple but it tastes so good. No one would guess you spent so little time preparing it.

I made this chicken soup for my monthly book club dinner and the ladies loved it. Of course not everyone likes asparagus so it's a good idea to perhaps check on that before making large quantities of the soup.

I cook with garlic whenever I can but this recipe doesn't 'officially' call for garlic. I added a teaspoon of fresh minced garlic at the stage of frying the chicken pieces and onion. I just like the dimension that garlic adds to the flavour of the soup.



If you like asparagus it's particularly usefull as a starter or for a light lunch.
