This creamy, hearty pot of soup will certainly keep you warm and cozy on the coldest winter day. The ingredients include boneless, skinless chicken thighs, butter, ground black pepper, salt, diced yellow onions, peeled and diced carrots, diced celery, chopped white mushrooms, flour, dry white wine, chicken broth, lemon juice, heavy whipping cream, chopped parsley, and chopped thyme.

Melt butter in a Dutch oven and cook chicken until golden brown on each side. Set aside. Melt more butter in the Dutch oven and cook the onions, celery, and carrots until they are soft. Add in mushrooms and stir until they are browned. Stir in the flour to coat the veggies. Stir in the wine and simmer, constantly stirring until thickened. Add in whipping cream, herbs, lemon juice, broth, and chicken, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer.
