Cooler Temps = Cozy Meals

If you aren’t making creamy soups when the weather cools down, you’re missing the point of autumn.

I absolutely love Fall and Winter! And with that out comes my love of making homemade soup that is full of flavor, filling and doesn’t take all day. Seriously, Y’all know that I am a 30-minute meal mom at heart. I even wrote the blog post Your Complete Weeknight Dinner Guide.  So, for me, if I can make a soup in 30-minutes that’s delicious, then I know I have a good recipe on my hands.

This is one of those soups that can re-warm you from your head to your toes after spending time outside on these cold fall and winter days. The earthy comfort of dried herbs makes this chicken soup recipe extra wonderful. Best of all, this recipe is made from scratch, super fresh, delicious and perfect for the times when you’re craving a hearty creamy chicken recipe that’s full of sliced mushrooms in every bite.

Serve the soup as a first course or serve it as a lunch or supper soup with a sandwich or salad. If you are using pre-cooked chicken, add it to the soup about 10 minutes before it’s done.
