Chicken Sopas, my favorite soup

First,  if you have kids who don’t like to eat veggies, you can grate the veggies for them of slice them very thinly, or even chop. This is a good way to let your kids start eating veggies.

This dish has been my favorite since I was a kid. My mom used to buy an instant soup mix and cooked it for me. Well, I can still buy one if I wanted to, but you so feel good when you can do better than these instant foods. Anyway, I have two recipes here. The first one, I used Campbell’s Cream of Chicken and the second one, I just used what I had in my kitchen.
