I honestly didn't think I could like a soup so much and then I had this one that brings alfredo pasta to soup form. I just loved how wonderfully creamy and thick this soup was. It really sits nice and heavy in your stomach and is perfect for a cold night. Tennessee has been quite the whiplash for weather lately. It'll be really cold but then semi-warm the next moment. So I am not sure if I'm ready just yet to have this soup again, but I know we aren't too far off from it.

What you need:
  • 1/2 lb. bacon
  • 12 oz. egg noodles, cooked al dente and drained
  • 2 Tbsp. bacon grease or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 2 3/4 cup chicken broth, divided
  • 5 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 5 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper 
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 cups shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, cubed
  • For garnish: bacon bits and dried parsley flakes
  1. Place bacon on a rimmed baking sheet that has been lined with foil. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until crispy. Then transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and let cool. Once cooled, chop and reserve a little bit for garnish. 
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 Tbsp. of bacon grease over medium heat in a large skillet.
  3. Add chicken and cook for 10 minutes, stirring often. Then add 1/4 cup chicken broth and cook for 5 to 10 more minutes. Remove from heat and chop into smaller pieces.
  4. In a stockpot, melt butter with garlic over medium heat. Whisk in flour and pepper.
  5. Then stir in remaining chicken broth plus heavy cream and milk. Whisk until smooth.
  6. Cook over medium heat until it begins to simmer, stirring often.
  7. Add parmesan cheese and cream cheese. Stir until they melt.
  8. Add cooked chicken, noodles, and bacon. Reduce heat to low and cook until heated through, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking and burning.
  9. Serve topped with bacon bits and parsley.

Another perfect soup to warm you up on a cold day is this Jalapeno Popper Chicken Soup that is spicy and delicious. I would love to try alfredo as an appetizer and this "Skinny" Chicken Alfredo Dip from A Dash of Sanity seems to be the one for me! Indulgent, but not too indulgent :)
