Preparation – 10 minutes

Clean 500 grams of mushrooms using a mushroom brush or a piece of kitchen paper. Cut the mushrooms into thin slices.

Remove the skin from about 6 carrots with a vegetable peeler. Cut the carrots into thin slices. If you're using chicken stock cubes, it is best to prepare the stock in advance.

Making the creamy chicken soup with mushrooms – 25 minutes

Heat a knob of butter in a large frying pan, sauté the mushrooms until they are lightly golden brown. Remove the fried mushrooms from the pan and place them in a small bowl.

Trim off the fat from the 2 chicken breasts, if desired. Leave the chicken breasts whole. Now fill the large saucepan with 2 litres of chicken stock and add the 2 chicken breasts along with the carrots.

Let the chicken breast simmer in the stock for about 15 minutes.

In the meantime, make a roux by melting 100 grams of butter in a small saucepan. Once the bubbles have disappeared, add 120 grams of flour, beat well with a whisk.

The roux should cook on low heat for a few minutes, then turn off the heat and let the roux cool.

After 15 minutes, remove the chicken breasts from the large saucepan and place them on the chopping board. Use 2 forks to pull the chicken apart.

Add 200 ml of cream to the pan. Gradually add the roux, beating well with a whisk until no more lumps are visible.

The fried mushrooms can now be returned to the saucepan together with the “pulled chicken” pieces. Stir everything well, season with salt, pepper and half a tablespoon of nutmeg.

Let the soup simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes. Enjoy this deliciously filling creamy chicken and mushroom soup!
