Chicken Tomato Bisque

It rained this week. What is up with rain in the middle of May??? I didn't really mind it, it just was weird. But it did put me in the mood for some soup. I love soup as a main dish. It's healthy, filling and warms you up when you are a little chilly. This soup was delicious! I topped my with some tri-colored tortilla strips. You could serve some warm, crusty bread with it too for the perfect meal.

1 TB. olive oil
1 carrot chopped
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic minced
1/4 c. flour
1 (28oz) can whole tomatoes or diced with juice
1 1/2 c. chicken broth
1 tsp. chopped oregano
1/4 c. heavy cream
1 tsp. salt
2 c. shredded, cooked chicken breast

Heat pot over med-high heat, combine oil, carrot, onion and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally until onions are soft (6-8 min). Stir in flour until vegetables are all coated. Add tomatoes, broth nd 1/2 tsp. oregano, stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 min. Working in small batches, puree soup in blender or food processor and then transfer back into pot. Stir in chicken, cream and salt and heat through. Season to taste with pepper and garnish with remaining oregano.
