Both my husband and his cousin had seconds, and they said it was very good.

    What you need

    • 4 Tbsp olive oil
    • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 medium onions, diced
    • 16 oz cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
    • 6 carrots, peeled and diced
    • 4 stalks celery, diced
    • 5 – 6 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 tsp dried thyme
    • 1/4 cup arrowroot starch
    • 8 cups chicken stock
    • 1 cup half and half, or more, as needed
    • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley leaves
    • spring rosemary

    Preparation

    Heat olive oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Season chicken breasts with garlic powder, salt, and pepper, to taste. Add chicken to the stockpot and cook until golden, about 2-3 minutes; set aside.

    Heat another 2 Tbsp oil in the stockpot over medium heat. Add onion, mushrooms, carrots, and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 – 6 minutes. Stir in minced garlic, thyme until fragrant, about 1 minute.

    In a large bowl, whisk in arrowroot starch with 1/4 cup of the chicken stock until combined, about 1 minute. Add in remaining chicken stock, chicken breasts and arrowroot starch mixture to the stockpot, and cook, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened, about 4-5 minutes.

    Stir in half and half until heated through, about 1-2 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste. If the soup is too thick, add more half and half as needed until desired consistency is reached.

    Serve immediately, garnished with fresh rosemary, if desired.

    Hi. I love your recipes but I really wish you would cater for the UK as well. We just get baffled by cup measurement and half and half. I spend so much time looking things up on google lol.

    But do like the recipes for ideas. Thank you. Pauline
