Broccoli Cheese Soup

1 medium onion, chopped fine
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 can cream of chicken soup
4 cups water
2 cups milk (I used 2%)
1/2 tsp rosemary
1 tsp thyme
1tbsp each salt and pepper
1 bag of frozen chopped broccoli
1 1/2 c. shredded cheese
1 cup half and half

*may add 2/3 c. uncooked rice or 2 cups diced potatoes to make it more filling*
*may also add 2 boneless chicken breast, cut into small chunks*

In a large pot, melt the butter and saute the onions (If you’re going to add chicken do it now). Add the flour and stir until mixture is pasty. Add the cream soup and slowly whisk in milk and water. Add seasonings and bring to a simmer (if you’re going to add rice or potatoes do it now). After 15 minutes reduce the heat and add broccoli and cheese and stir until cheese is melted. Add half and half, simmer for 5 more minutes then serve.
