For some weird reason I have craved Lemon-chicken-artichoke soup for 3 days now.
Such a weird thing to crave huh?
I couldn't find a recipe that looked like what I was craving, so I made my own!
Oh goodness, I gotta admit, it was good.
Really, really good!
Here we go!
Start with these ingredients:
That would be
6 pieces of chicken tenders
A large handful of sliced mushrooms
1 or 2 cans of quartered artichokes (drained)
3 smashed garlic cloves
4 green onions chopped
Truffle oil or olive oil
1 can of Coconut milk
Box of Chicken stock
Marsala (if wanted)
Tsp. of thyme
In the most beautiful copper pot you've ever owned from Home Goods (my friend Susie would be so proud) heat up about 2 TBSP of the fabulous truffle oil that your hubs gave you for Christmas.
(hey. it was an amazing gift.)
Or you can use olive oil.
Add the smashed garlic
Add the onions and let them get a bit tender
Then the chicken and brown
Remove the chicken
Not sure why I didn't add the mushrooms before the chicken but oh well.
I added them now but had to add a bit of chicken broth because it was too dry and starting to burn.
It all worked out.
Add the rest of the box of chicken broth to the mix
I will tell you that it is hard to photograph with one hand cooking.
Now add one can of drained quartered artichoke hearts
*tip - try to remove any tough outside leaves that you can
Now add about 1/2 cup of lemon juice
And a can of coconut milk
It was really smelling good in my house by now.
Add the chicken back in and all seasonings
And bring to a boil
Reduce the heat to low
Cover and simmer for about 1 hour
After 1 hour, remove the chicken and pull apart
If you do not have an emulsion blender get one.
It will change your soup lovin heart
Blend for about 20 seconds.
Re-add the shredded chicken
It needed something else, so I added a bit of cumin and a little more salt.
I also added another can of drained artichokes to thicken and about 1/4 cup of marsala for richness
Cook on low for about 20 more minutes
It was perfect!
I'll be eating leftovers for lunch!
Have a great day y'all!
