This chicken soup recipe combines chicken with mushrooms, leek, celery, cream and more for a really aromatic and flavorful chicken soup. You can omit the cream if you prefer a clear soup but it does add a very good flavor. Use any kind of mushrooms you like or a combination.

The earthy flavor of the mushrooms goes really nicely with all the other ingredients in this tasty and hearty chicken soup.

You can use pasta or any kind of noodles for this. This is a healthy and filling homemade chicken soup recipe and one which is very simple to prepare.

You can freeze this chicken soup recipe if you like but, if you are going to do that, leave out the cream and fresh parsley. This is a very hearty soup.
