Chicken and Vegetable Soup with a Creamy Finish


In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Before you add the chicken thighs to the casserole, season them with salt and pepper. Brown the meat by cooking it for five to seven minutes each side. Once taken from the pan, transfer the chicken to a different bowl.
Add the chopped onion, sliced celery, and sliced carrots to the same saucepan as the oil for sautéing. Cook the veggies in a skillet until they're soft. The vegetables should begin to soften, which should take around five minutes. Simmer for one more minute after adding the minced garlic to the pan.
Bring the soup to a thicker consistency:
To ensure even coating, sprinkle the all-purpose flour over the vegetables and toss to combine. The raw flour taste should disappear after a few minutes in the oven.
Combine the chicken with the liquids: Reduce heat to low and add chicken broth slowly, whisking continuously. Avoid the formation of lumps by doing this. When the chicken thighs are golden brown, return them to the pan with the diced potatoes. If you're using thyme, adding the sprig will enhance the flavor even more. After the soup comes to a boil, lower the heat and simmer, covered, for about twenty minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are tender.
Incorporate Extra Vegetables:
When you take the chicken thighs from the soup, use two forks to shred them. Put the shredded chicken back into the pot. After about five to seven minutes of cooking, add the broccoli florets and green peas; simmer until the vegetables are tender yet colorful.
Use Cream as a Finishing Touch: Lower the heat to a low setting and mix in the cream. Thoroughly warming the cream without boiling it is essential to keep it from curdling. If you want your soup just right, season it with salt and pepper.

As a serving suggestion, remove any thyme sprigs and spoon the soup into individual bowls. Drizzle with fresh thyme leaves or parsley when ready to serve, whatever you choose.
The bottom line is that this Chicken and Vegetable Creamy Soup pays homage to the home-cooked goodness that is really unparalleled.
