Chicken Velvet Soup

Soup season is the only upside to fall and winter, in my humble opinion. I love making soup on the weekend and then eating it all through the week. It’s not only a simple solution for a busy work week, but it’s also budget-friendly and delicious.

This Creamy Chicken Velvet Soup is no exception. My kids gobble it up any night of the week. Maybe that’s because Chicken Velvet Soup is as smooth and creamy as velvet. (I know that wasn’t that funny, but go ahead and give me a little chuckle. I’d really appreciate it.)

Chicken Velvet Soup with Rotisserie Chicken

Rotisserie Chickens are a life-saver at my house. I grab one every time I make a Costco run, and usually, I just pick it apart and cube it up for other recipes.

If you prep the chicken as soon as you get home, I promise you’ll appreciate the chicken being ready to go later when your family is hungry and ready for dinner!

I love how this velvety chicken soup recipe only calls for approximately 1 cup of finely chopped chicken (breast or dark meat). This means, you can use most of the rotisserie chicken for other recipes, like Grandma Betty’s Chicken Salad or Chicken Noodle Casserole, and you will still have enough left over to whip up a batch of easy chicken velvet soup.

Ingredient List for Velvety Chicken Soup

LS Ayres Chicken Velvet Soup

Chicken Velvet Soup became widely popular back in the day when it was served in the LS Ayres Tea Room. I imagine a cute little cup of this velvety chicken soup served along side some salty crackers. It was a hit back then, and it’s sure to be a hit today.

Personally, it’s a hit in my book because it takes less than 15 minutes start to finish to make this old-fashioned Cream of Chicken Soup.

Notes About Creamy Chicken Soup Recipe

  • Creamy Chicken soup reminds me of a thinner version of cream of chicken soup – a homemade, less artificial cream of chicken soup.
  • Margarine could be substituted for butter, if needed.
  • While cooking, be sure to stir or whisk constantly so the soup doesn’t stick to the bottom.
  • Any type of leftover cooked chicken will work, but I love using rotisserie chicken.
  • If you want more chicken, feel free to add as much as you like.
  • Chicken velvet soup is a great base soup recipe. Add in your other favorite ingredients such as beans, cooked veggies, lemon juice, etc.
