creamy mushroom & chicken soup

I love this + my family loves it = it's a keeper.

Found this recipe in Family Fun magazine, actually, and all of the ingredients appealed to me. Made it. Loved it. I've added this to our favorites, which means I'm happy to share it too (with my personal modifications).



CREAMY MUSHROOM & CHICKEN SOUP

6 Tbsp. butter
1 medium onion, chopped
3 Tbsp. flour
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
6 c. chicken broth
1 lb. mushrooms, sliced
3/4 c. sliced celery
3/4 c. chopped carrots
2 c. quartered baby red potatoes
1 c. chopped yellow squash
1 1/2 c. frozen corn kernels, thawed
2 tsp. thyme
2 c. light cream
3/4 c. grated Parmesan, plus more for garnish if desired
2 c. chopped cooked chicken

In a large post, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 6 minutes. Stir in the four, salt, and pepper and mix until smooth. Gradually add the broth, then turn the heat up to medium-high and bring the soup to a boil. Add the mushrooms, celery, carrots, potatoes, squash, corn, and thyme. Reduce the heat and simmer the soup, covered, until the vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes.

Add the cream, Parmesan, and chicken. Heat the soup for an additional 10 minutes, but do not let it boil. To serve, ladle the soup into a bowl and sprinkle it with more Parmesan, if desired. Makes about 15 cups.

I too found this in family fun last week and made it. It is so good. I used zuccini because i had it on hand and left out the corn because I didn't have it. It is so good!

there's plenty of other vegetables in the soup...there'd be no need to "substitute" them if you didnt want them.

Made this tonight for my family and got such compliments! Great for cold days! I used your techniques to photograph the soup for my P-365 and brought out the bright colored bowls and plates and the photo turned out so much better than when I tried it in the pot. I'm learning!

I can't tell you how much I loved this soup. Even better, after an exhausting trip to the grocery store to buy the ingredients...my husband made it for me so that I could have time to scrapbook. I did sneak down to the kitchen to snap a picture of him and our son (3 years) cooking things up. I knew I wanted to capture the moment for project 365! :) Thanks for sharing this with us. -- Laura

Tried this the day you posted and even my kids who don't do veggies - loved it! I would only use half of the butter though next time. Thanks for posting.

We loved this soup. We are not thyme fans so I used crushed rosemary instead. I also added some minced garlic with the onion. I could eat this soup for breakfast!!!

I made this soup this weekend and had to change things a bit too (like canned corn because I couldn't believe it but I was out of frozen) and I used one can of the cooked chicken - we all LOVED it! My family can't wait for me to make this one again. It feed 5 of us with leftovers for only 2 the next day.

Delish. My husband is not a soup eater. We live in Hawai'i, so there's no "soup weather." It's rarely cold enough. The past couple of days have been colder than usual, so I thought it'd be the perfect time. It's a hit!
