Weight Watchers Monday: Creamy Chicken Mushroom Soup

 Today is Memorial Day, and let's not forget why we celebrate this day.

With the weather being so unpredictable....
cold one day
raining the next
I decided to slip in one more soup recipe.
This soup is out of this world fantastic.
I am a creamy mushroom soup fan, and the chicken added is a super bonus.
This will certainly warm your soul.
This creamy soup is only 5 WW points per serving (1 cup).
So if you want to end your day with a warm heart, this soup will do the trick.

Creamy Chicken Mushroom Soup

1/2 lb. mushrooms cleaned and sliced
2 1/2 c. cubed cooked chicken (I used Tyson ready to use grilled chicken (1 1/2 packages))
1/4 c. onions, chopped
1/4 c. celery, sliced thin
1/4 c. carrots, sliced
5 1/2 c. chicken broth (I used chicken soup base)
1/4 c. butter
3 c. half and half 
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. pepper, add to your liking
1/4 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. white pepper
1 pinch dried tarragon
1/2 tsp. hot pepper sauce
1 TBS minced parsley
1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt, add to your liking

In a large Dutch oven, saute mushrooms, onion, celery, and carrot in butter until tender.
Stir in flour until blended. Add broth and seasonings, mix well. 
Bring to a boil, reduce heat; simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. 
Stir in half and half, chicken, parsley, lemon juice, and salt. Heat 5 more minutes on low heat.
