So initially this was a meatless mushroom soup recipe, but after the second attempt I decided to add some chicken strips and ever since that time I couldn't dare make it without the chicken because my family loves it like that. So it can be served as a starter or a main.
Okay so lets start with the ingredients you'll need and directions on how to make it, maybe it will become your favourite too.
2 medium onions chopped
1 clove garlic
2 tablespoons cake flour
1 litre chicken stock
1 sprig of tyme
I bay leave
Half a cup fresh cream
salt + pepper
you can also add :
add 15ml balsamic vinegar
15ml lemon juice
2,5 ml rosemary
Wipe mushrooms / chop up
Put chicken stock to heat in a separate pan.
In a large pan cook onions thyme, rosemary and crushed garlic in butter over a medium heat, until they are soft and translucent but not browned. Add lime juice and balsamic vinegar.
Add mushrooms, raise heat & cook, stirring frequently, 3min.
Sprinkle flour over the mushrooms and stir it so that it coats the mushrooms, then cook, stir constantly for another minute. Add chicken pieces, cut in strips or cubes totally up to you.
Salt + pepper.
Pour hot chicken stock over the mushrooms and bring back to boil, add bay leave and reduce heat.
Add the fresh cream. Cook for a few minutes.
Serve hot and enjoy :)
