Chicken mushroom soup
My mom was here for my second delivery and made a lot of soup varieties for me. Chicken mushroom soup is one of the soup varieties she made often at least twice a week. I liked it so much. She learned this chicken mushroom soup recipe from a cookery book. It is a very simple and easy soup to make.
You can have chicken mushroom soup with bread sticks or cheese sticks. The onions add an extra zing to the soup. Adding fried onions to the soup is my mom’s idea. When she said she is going add fried onions, I hesitated but then when I tasted I just loved it. Adding fried onions is purely your choice. You can omit it if you do not want it.
