Creamy Mushroom Chicken Soup

Creamy Mushroom Chicken Soup

The cool temperatures of fall make it soup weather.  But, fall doesn’t just bring pretty leaves and pumpkins, it also brings with it cold and flu season.  We have experienced a bought with this over the last week with my husband having a horrible virus.  This creamy mushroom chicken soup is one of the soups I made for him.  It was really delicious and not at all difficult.  I used bone in chicken breasts with the skin still on to cook the chicken because I think it makes a tastier broth, but you could use boneless, skinless to save time.
