chicken chowder

A delicious, simple soup for chilly days: 

The ingredients fall into the “have on hand” category & the diced apple added a little extra yummy.  The only addition made was adding turmeric for color.

Recipe from Penzey’s Spices: 

Melt 1/2 stick butter in stock pot & add, diced:  1 onion, 1 carrot, 1 celery stalk, 1/2 bell pepper

Cook for 2-3 minutes.  Sprinkle 1/4 cup flour, salt, fresh ground pepper, stir until combined.  Mix in 1 cup boiling water gradually until combined.  Stir in 28 oz. diced tomatoes, reduce heat to medium low, add:  1 peeled, diced apple, 1 tsp. thyme, 1 T. parsley flakes.  Simmer 30 minutes.  Add 3 cups milk & 1 cup diced, cooked chicken, heat through.
