And if you enjoy a little red wine with dinner, this recipe gives you an excuse to open a bottle. Twist my arm, please!
This recipe calls for eight cups of chicken stock, so make sure you start with a 6-8 quart stock pot. Melt the butter and then sauté the onions and garlic until translucent.
Then add the mushrooms, thyme, and oregano, cooking until the mushrooms release their water.
Once the mushrooms cook down, deglaze the pot with red wine (maybe taking a sip or two in the process), and add in the shredded chicken and chicken broth.
If you don’t know what it means to deglaze a pan, no worries. I had to look it up myself. It sounds fancier than it actually is. Deglazing simply means adding liquid, in this case, red wine, to scrap cooked food bits off the bottom of the pan, imparting added flavor to the liquid in the dish.
Bring the soup to a boil, then lower the heat and allow to simmer for about ten minutes.
Finally, whisk in the xanthan gum and heavy cream, and simmer until soup thickens.
Serve and enjoy right away, or package up in one-cup servings for meals later in the week.
