  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • salt, to taste
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp red chilli powder
  • ½ cup cooked and shredded chicken

  4. Next pour chicken stock into the roux while whisking continuously.
  5. Add the sauteed mushrooms back into the soup.
  6. Add salt, pepper and red chilli powder along with the roasted shredded chicken.
  7. Pour in heavy cream and let simmer for a 10 mins or until thickened nicely. Adjust spices if needed.
