From Fred Peters:

Broth: 1 chicken (about 5 lb) 2 1/2 quarts water

Soup: 3/4 c butter (room temperature) 3/4 c flour 2 c light cream (OR
half-and-half) 6 c chicken stock, heated 1 1/2 c cooked chicken breast,
finely chopped Salt, to taste, if desired Freshly ground black pepper, to
taste 1 c fresh parsley, snipped, to garnish

Broth: Simmer the chicken for about 1 hour. Remove the chicken and cool;
remove the meat from the bones. Reserve the white meat and save the
remainder for other uses.

Soup: Blend the butter and flour together in a mdm (3-quart) saucepan.
Warm the cream in a seperate pan. Add the warmed cream to the butter-flour
mixture and stir until smooth. It will start to thicken when it is heated.
Stir in two c of the hot stock. Cook over low heat, stirring, until heated
through and blended, about 4 minutes. Add an additional 4 c of stock and
the chopped chicken. Season to taste with salt, if desired, and pepper.
Heat to serving temperaturesteaming, but not boiling or the cream will
break. Watch the pot closely to keep from coming to a boil.

Serve from a heated tureen and ladle into heated bowls. Garnish with
snippets of fresh parsley.
