Then add butter and flour to make a rue (make sure butter if fully melt and flour is all coated in butter and it looks like a paste) to thicken your soup. Then de-glaze with chicken stock and bring to boil. Then add 1 qts. of Water and the rest of the ingredients (except cheese) and diced chicken and simmer fo at least 1/2 hour.
