  • 4 Tbsp extra virgin 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


  • 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.
