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

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! Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More

This soup was great! Used a bit less taragon. Wasn't sure I would like it as not keen on tarragon. It was tasty and next time I would use amt. of taragon in recipe. I expected it to need salt at the table as there wasn't much in the recipe but found it didn't need more for most of us. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
