Ingredients for Cream Of Chicken Soup
Chicken Stock :
A good chicken stock should have good body and a mild savoury flavour that complements rather than competes with the sauces, glazes, and soup bases you make with it. There are many ways to beef up a basic chicken stock, but adding beef is not one of them.
Unsalted Butter :
Unsalted butter allows you to completely control the flavour of your recipe. This is especially important in baked goods that rely heavily on the pure, sweet cream flavour of butter (butter cookies or pound cakes). When it comes to cooking, unsalted butter allows the true, natural flavour of your foods to shine through.
Green Chilli :
The green chillies in cooked or raw form give a fiery hot flavor. To reduce the fiery hot flavor the seeds and inner membranes could be removed which is effective at reducing the heat of the pod.
