Fall Soup Sizzler// Bacon Cheddar Beer Soup With Chicken

Today I bring you a new recipe I tried over the weekend and loved. It was definitely more of a chowder consistency, but still hit the spot.




Bacon Cheddar Beer Soup With Chicken (adapted from The Slow Roasted Italian)

You will need:

6 slices thick cut bacon
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
¼ cup butter
¼ cup flour
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 cup beer, Belgian style wheat beer (Blue Moon)
1 cup chicken broth
2 cups half and half
8 ounces mild cheddar cheese, shredded 
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
chives
croutons




1.Warm an 8 quart pot over high heat.  Using clean scissors; cut bacon into pot.  Cook bacon until lightly crisp, stirring occasionally.

2.While the bacon cooks cut the chicken into bite size pieces. 

3. Remove bacon from pan and place on a plate. Add chicken into bacon grease to cook. Stir occasionally until chicken is cooked through.  Remove chicken onto plate with bacon.

4.Cut butter into 1 tablespoon pieces and add to pan drippings.  

5.Whisk in flour and spices.   Next add beer, broth and half & half.  Whisk to combine and bring to a bubble.  

6. Add cheese and whisk to combine, then stir until you have a smooth mixture.  Add Worcestershire sauce, chicken and bacon.  Stir to combine.

7. Allow to simmer until ready to serve, stirring occasionally. 

8. Garnish with chives and croutons

I transferred the soup to the crockpot once complete and kept on warm until ready to enjoy later in the day. 

Enjoy!
