Chicken Cordon Bleu Soup

I made this also since we didn't have Chicken Cordon Bleu for my Hubby's Birthday.  A Super Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu meal using the recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu Egg Noodles  just adding more cream.   It Was Delicious!  I hope you like it also.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Soup

2 cups chicken breast, cooked and diced
1/2 to 1 cup smoked ham, diced
8 cups chicken broth, homemade or bought 
2 tablespoon minced garlic
2 teaspoon italian seasoning, I use McCormick Italian Herb Seasoning 
(I like the herbs are ground as needed)
pepper to taste
salt to taste, Do taste before adding...the ham and cheese may be all the salt needed
1/2 to 1 cup heavy cream or more if desired
4 to 8 tablespoons corn starch, depending on how thick you want the soup
enough water to blend the cornstarch
4-8 slices swiss cheese
parsley or basil to garnish

Take heavy cream out of refrigerator.

Put chicken broth, garlic, italian seasoning and ham in a pot.  You can add chicken now if you would like it shredded like the picture above.
  Bring to a boil. 
Add swiss cheese and stir to melt.
Taste and add salt and pepper if desired.  
Mix cornstarch with water to make a slurry.
Add to broth. Keep boiling and stirring until the desired thickness.
Adding more cornstarch if too thin, water or broth if to thick. 
Add cut up chicken.
Add heavy cream and keep on stove until heated through.

To Serve
Sprinkle with parsley or basil. Add curls or shredded swiss cheese.
Hearty slices of One Hour French Bread and a simple salad.
