Here's are the step-by-step instructions from making crockpot cream of chicken and mushroom soup.
Add ingredients to the crockpot. Add chicken, onions, mushrooms, garlic, 1 cup broth, wine, tarragon, bay leaf, salt, and pepper to slow cooker. C
Slow cook. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, until chicken is done and vegetables are tender. (Alternatively, you can saute the onions and mushrooms in olive oil in a skillet until tender before adding to crockpot if you want).
Thicken soup. Remove lid and remove bay leaf. In a small dish, mix xanthan gum with 1/2 tbsp olive oil until dissolved, then add to soup. Stir in half and half and sour cream. Stir until thickened.
Serve. Serve and enjoy!
Do you put raw chicken in soup?
Most recipes call for raw chicken in the soup. The chicken is then simmered in the broth until it is cooked. By using raw chicken, you can get an extra flavorful broth.
What goes best in chicken soup?
So many things can go into chicken soup. As a base, most chicken soup starts with chicken stock or broth. Chicken, onions, carrots, celery, salt, and pepper are then usually added. From there, you can customize your soup with variations of herbs and other additions.
Can I make this in my Instant Pot?
Here's how to make chicken mushroom soup in your Instant Pot pressure cooker. See recipe card for ingredients.
- Set Instant Pot to saute, medium heat. Add olive oil, onions, and mushrooms. Saute for 5 to 6 min minutes until mushrooms are soft.
- Add garlic and chicken. Saute for 5 to 6 minutes. Turn off the saute setting.
- Add broth, wine, butter, tarragon, bay leaf, salt, and pepper to the pot. Secure lid and pressure cook on high, for 6 minutes. Allow the steam to release for 15 minutes, then manually release the remaining steam.
- Remove bay leaf from soup. Mix xanthan gum with 1/2 tbsp olive oil until dissolved and add to soup. Stir until thickened. Add half and half and sour cream. Serve and enjoy!
How do you make soup thick and creamy?
To make soup thick and creamy, you should use a thickener. A typical thickener would be cornstarch and flour. If you are following a low-carb and keto diet, the best thickener is xanthan gum.
Start by dissolving 1/2 tsp xanthan gum with 1 teaspoon of olive oil, and mix. Add to soup and stir. A little goes a long way! Usually, I can thicken soup nicely with 1/2 tsp only.
Adding cheese will also help thicken the soup. You can also allow the soup liquid to simmer and evaporate.
