Chicken-mushroom Soup

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Jellyqueen

I love soup from scratch, but every now and then, I take the easy way out. This is one of the recipes I use for leftover meat. I usually use chicken, but it will work with any type of meat.

Delicious! This was the perfect Friday after work dinner; easy to put together with leftovers. I used some leftover pumpkin risotto, so the soup thickened up without adding the cornstarch. Thanks for posting this!
