Chicken Bisque Soup

Submitted by Marcia

3 lb Stewing Hen (or 3 half chicken breasts)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped chicken( I use about 2 cups)
1/2 cup pimento, chopped fine
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
3 – 4 drops yellow food color

Boil a 3 lb stewing hen in 12 cups water with 1 1/2 T salt. Strain off 8 cups stock. (OR: cook 3 half chicken breasts.) Make a roux of melted butter and flour. Add to stock and simmer 15 min. Add pimento, green pepper, pepper, food color, and chicken. Cook on simmer for 30 min.

Save excess 4 cup broth for thinning when reheating for leftovers, if desired.
