I got this recipe from my sister. It's hearty enough to be a meal in itself.

Oh YUM. What a flavorful and comforting soup!! I used a store-bought rotisserie chicken and Uncle Ben's fast cook long grain & wild rice. Instead of sherry, I used white wine, since I had some in the fridge. For our familys' preferences only, I did add a little more flour (I'd say a heaping 1/4 cup is what I used) to make it a bit thicker and added a little chicken boullion granuales, salt and pepper for even more added flavor. We enjoyed this with a loaf of crusty bread for dinner. I just reaheated the soup for our lunch today. This is SOOO GOOD. I highly recommend this soup. :)

Wow! This soup is amazing. I wasn't expecting that my husband and I would enjoy it so much. I actually caught him eating it this morning for breakfast. I'll keep this one on file to make again.

This is such a great recipe! It is very easy to make and really warms you up. I made as posted using one of those already roasted chickens from the grocery store. I think that next time I will slice up the mushrooms instead of halving them. Thanks so much for posting such a yummy recipe!
