Chicken & Mushroom Soup

Chicken & Mushroom Soup 018

Today is the first day of spring!!! Finally 🙂 It’s been so cold this winter and I am still making soup at least once a week. This week I got a great deal on bella mushrooms so I thought I would make a big pot of Chicken & Mushroom soup. It’s very easy to make. I love fresh mushrooms, especially the bella type, they are firmer and hold up well in a soup. They soak up all that flavorful broth.

You’ll need:

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

8 ounces mushrooms sliced

1 cup onion chopped

6 cups chicken broth (I use my homemade)

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into (1-inch) cubes

3/4 cup long grain brown rice

1 bay leaf

Salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot. (I use my dutch oven which I love), Heat the oil over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, onion and garlic, cook until soft about 5 minutes.

    Our weather has suffered from multiple personality disorder, so although it was in the upper 70’s today, we’ll be having soup weather again by Tuesday. My son loves mushrooms, so I bet he would love this soup. Thanks for sharing at Tales of a Pee Dee Mama.
