- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp garlic, minced
- 1 onion, about 1 cup diced
- 1/4 cup flour
- 2 1/2 cups skim milk
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 5 medium russet potatoes,washed, peeled, and diced into 1/2 inch cubes

- In a separate pot, or pan, melt butter. Add onions and saute until soft.
- Add garlic, and saute 1-2 minutes.
- Add flour to the pan and whisk together with the onions and garlic. Let the mixture cook about 1 minute.
- Slowly add the milk, a 1/2 cup at a time, whisking constantly. The only lumps you should see should be the onions.
- Continue adding milk and whisking constantly until all the milk has been evenly incorporated.
- Bring the roux to a simmer and let it heat until thickened, about 5 minutes, whisking often.
- Add the thickened roux to the potatoes and chicken broth in the large pot.
- Using a potato masher, mash potatoes in the pot until there’s minimal chunks.
- Turn the heat to low, and add the chicken and ham.
- Add salt and pepper to soup to taste.
- When heated through, add the swiss and stir until melted and evenly incorporated.
