This recipe can be prepared a day ahead and can easily be doubled or tripled. I garnish each serving with a dab of sour cream. By adding chicken and rice, you can turn it into a main course.—Kathy Schrecengost, Oswego, New York
- 2 small onions, chopped
- 1/2 cup butter, cubed
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 6 cups chicken broth
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- In a large saucepan, saute onions in butter until tender, about 2-3 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually add broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Stir in cayenne. Yield: 4-6 servings.

"Everyone loves this soup when I make it. I leave the chicken in and add barley to make a main course meal. I serve it with delicious, moist tea biscuits."
