- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 8 oz. white mushrooms sliced
- 4 green onions ends removed and chopped thin, white and green parts separated
- 2/3 cup Marsala wine
- 6-7 cups chicken stock
- 3 cups rotisserie chicken, shredded
- 1-1.2 cups egg noodles (uncooked)
Heat a heavy soup pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and mushrooms and cook, while stirring occasionally, until mushrooms start to release their juices, approximately 6-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Add white parts of onion to pan and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring once or twice.
Increase heat to high and add the Marsala wine. Cook until wine has reduced to 1/3 of its volume, approximately 4-5 minutes.
Add chicken stock and shredded chicken and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to just below medium. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
Turn heat up to meidum-high and add the egg noodles. Cook for about 10 additional minutes, stirring often.
Remove from heat and ladle into individual soup bowls. Garnish with green parts of onion and serve immediately.
To make an even healthier soup, use a combination of mushrooms like white button and baby bella. Lightly rub mushrooms with a paper towel to remove any dirt or debris. Do not wash mushrooms in water. To store mushrooms until ready to use, leave in the fridge in the container they came in for 7-10 days.
Healthy soups for dinner can be quick and easy to prepare if you use leftover chicken and vegetables.
Fresh Mushrooms. Mushrooms are loaded with antioxidants and low in fat making them a great addition to any soup recipe. We always purchase whole mushrooms (instead of the pre-sliced). Always select mushrooms that are smooth and firm in texture.
Marsala Wine. Buy a quality bottle of Marsala wine to use in recipes. Do not use “cooking” wine that you can buy off of the supermarket shelf. A quality bottle of wine will last a long time and the flavor is far superior to grocery shelf wine. A decent bottle of wine should only run around $8.00 – $12.00 dollars.
