Cream of Chicken and Mushroom Soup -Made Easy


 

A very easy breezy recipe for mushroom and chicken soup. Usually flour is added with milk to give a thick texture for the cream of soup. But I have made in a different way and short-cut way .Penne pasta is pressure cooked with chicken legs and mushroom. When they all are cooked well, made a puree in a food processor and viola it’s ready to be served.
You may use potatoes in place of penne pasta to make a thick soup.

  2. Add in 1 tbs of butter. Sauté the chicken and vegetables for two to three minutes.
  3. Now fill in about 5-6 cups of water in a pressure cooker pan.

  6. And then stop the cooking process, turning off the burner/hob.
  7. Let the pressure subside completely. Unlock the pressure cooker lid from the pressure cooker pan.
  8. Let it cool a bit. Then puree it in the blender or food processor.
