I found this one online and tweaked it. It's rich and filling. Good comfort food.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir the tarragon, nutmeg, green onions, and 2 pinches of salt into the melted butter; cook and stir until the green onions are softened, about 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms, stir to coat, and continue cooking until the mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes more. Fold the chicken into the mixture and cook together until the chicken gets hot, about 1 minute. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture; stir until completely absorbed into the mixture, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Dissolve the beef bouillon cubes in the hot water; pour into the chicken mixture about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring to dissolve any clumps of flour between batches. Increase heat to bring the mixture to a boil; return heat to medium. Stir the sour cream into the mixture until well integrated.

  • Dissolve the cornstarch into the cold milk; stir into the soup. Increase the heat to medium-high and cook the soup until it begins to bubble on the sides, but not boiling; again return heat to medium, stirring continually. Add the lemon juice, cayenne pepper sauce, salt, and pepper; stir. Serve hot.

Loved it! I had no green onions or tarragon and used white onion instead. The taste would have been better with the green! Otherwise I kept everything to a tee. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Not a fan. The lemon juice did not complement this recipe at all. It called for way too much sour cream. Between the lemon and sour cream it has a strange tang. No one in my family will eat it. Trying to save it now so it doesn't go to waste...

Very good! I used left-over roast chicken instead of rotisserie but otherwise followed exactly. Love tarragon but think it could use a little less and a few more mushrooms. Needs a deep skillet!

Very good. I would however leave the nutmeg out next time because I don't like it. I could still taste it. But otherwise very good.

very good. we made some modifications and turned it into a slowcooker recipe. we used almond milk and no sour cream. we also used two thawed chicken breasts tripled the amount of tarragon and threw in a pack of frozen spinach. also we used two cans of chicken broth instead of the beef bouillon and water. cooked on low for 6 hrs.

Rich with lots of flavor. Easy to make. I bought local grocery fried chicken (remove all the skin and breading) and that makes it easy. Worked very well. Substituted lo fat sour cream and milk.....recipe is high in total and sat. fat. Great soup!

This soup went together pretty quickly. I had roasted a chicken the day before so I used that instead of store bought rotisserie chicken. Also didn't have tarragon so i substituted sage. I also added some garlic powder. Very nice satisfying soup. Will make it again.

It was very good however I left the nutmeg out because I'm just not a fan of it except in baked goods. Otherwise I followed the recipe but did add more mushrooms because we are partial to them.

The only change I made was adding a few more mushrooms. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly as written. The soup was a huge hit with the family and I will definitely make it again.
