Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 cups sliced wild mushrooms
  • teaspoons fine sea salt, divided
  • 2 large leeks; white part only, chopped
  • 2 large ribs celery, chopped
  • 1 large shallot, chopped
  • 4 skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning or dried sage
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Instructions

  • Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add mushrooms, sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt, and cook until mushrooms release their liquid and begin to cook dry.
  • Remove ½ cup of cooked mushrooms; reserve for later.
  • Add leeks, celery and shallot to pot; continue to cook over medium heat, until vegetables are soft and translucent.
  • Add chicken thighs, dried herbs, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, pepper and broth. Raise heat to high, cover, and bring to a boil.
  • Once soup has begun to boil, reduce heat and simmer covered until chicken is completely tender and falling from the bone, 30–40 minutes. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon, and set aside to cool briefly.
  • With an immersion blender or regular blender, blend hot soup until completely smooth.
  • Pull chicken meat from bones, and shred into pieces. Return chicken and reserved mushrooms to pot, and heat soup to a simmer. Stir in sour cream and fresh parsley.
  • Divide among four bowls, and garnish with a dollop of sour cream, a slice or two of sautéed mushroom, and a sprig of fresh parsley, if desired.

Notes

Tip: Using chicken thighs on the bone adds more nutrition and more flavor to this soup, but you can use boneless chicken thighs if you prefer.
