Creamy Chicken Mushroom Soup

It has been one weird winter here this year. Usually, this time, we are knee deep in snow and I’m snow blowing the driveway every other day.

Not this year.

I think I have used the snow blower once. It snowed for a few days, just enough to accumulate about 6-8 inches of snow, I used the snow blower to clear the driveway, and then all melted in the weeks after.

And now it’ll snow occasionally but then not be enough to accumulate or what does accumulate, melts the next day when the sun comes out for a little while. Meh.

While we haven’t had much snow on the ground this winter, it still has been super cold and rainy. The temp is just hovering over the freezing point so instead of snow we get rain.

Frozen rain.

As much as I’m not a fan of snow, I’d much rather have that then icy, frozen rain. Then with so much rain, the roads are just nasty and covered in a thin layer of ice and driving is treacherous.

So I tend not to leave the house much during these yucky days.

Anyway, with it being so gloomy and rainy out I’m still knee deep in the soup spirit. So to try and fight the rainy weather and freezing temps I whipped up a batch of creamy chicken mushroom soup.

This soup makes me feel not so bad about the crappy weather we are having and keeps me warm while seeing the freezing rain outside while cuddled under a blanket on the couch watching reruns on HGTV.

And I’ve discovered that the baby absolutely loves mushroom soup. Seriously. I served her some and she about ate 3 little baby bowls full. Who knew?

So I’d say this was a winner!

  1. Made this for a quick after dinner soup and it was great, love how the mushrooms added texture and a bit of chewiness, also added some leeks as well and that went great with all the other veggies in this soup. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. This soup was delicious! I really enjoyed the creaminess of it as well as the flavours of chicken and mushroom together. If i were to make it again i would make sure my carrots were completely cooked, in my rush to make this quickly i undercooked my carrots and the crunchiness didn’t really go with the smooth flavour of the rest of the soup.
