Entertaining tips:

  • If you are hosting a last-minute dinner party, serve Alfredo Chicken Soup as a main course. It is easy to make (use store bought rotisserie chicken) but comforting and satisfying.
  • This soup would also be a great choice for buffet or food station. I would keep it in a food warmer.
  • Serve it with crunchy rustic bread.
