Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (28 ounces) plum tomatoes with juice, chopped
  • 4-5 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil, or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh or dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme, or 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • 1-1/2–2 cups cooked chicken, diced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

    • Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Sauté the mushrooms, onion, and green pepper in the oil for about 5 minutes, until the mushrooms begin to give up their juice. Add the garlic and sauté for another minute.
    • Add the tomatoes, broth, basil, rosemary, and thyme. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30 to 45 minutes, until the flavors have blended.
    • Add the chicken and heat through. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
