DirectionsYou will need these ingredients to get started.Chop the onion, mushrooms and celery up and grate the garlic. Set the celery asideIn a large skillet pour in the olive oil and let warm then add in the mushrooms, onions, and garlic.
Sprinkle with the thyme, sea salt and pepper. Saute' till tender. Place in a small mixing bowl and set asideChop the chicken tenders in bite size pieces.In stock pot pour in the chicken broth. Add the chicken to the broth and add in the mushroom, garlic and onion mixture already saute'. Put on the top and let come to a rolling boilIn the skillet melt the one stick of butter then add in 4 tbsp of flour and with you wire whip give it a good stir about 2 or 3 min till it is well mixed.Add in the 1/4 cup of wine and let it deglaze while stirring just a few seconds. Now Add in the heavy cream and give it a good stir not allowing it to burn or stick to the bottom of pan. Now add in the cream cheese cubed so it will melt faster and continue to stir til incorporated into mixture. When it is thick set aside.Drain the sweet peas and pimientos. Add the celery with them to the stockpot and let cook about 2 minutes.Begin to add in the cream mixture slowly while continue to stir. Let it come to a thick soup like state and simmer over low heat with the 4 bay leaves at this point.Continue to keep close watch on the pot so as not to stick and burn on the bottom of pot. I kept stirring my pot. This is just to get all the flavors married in together. When thick remove the bay leaves , stir in the 1 teaspoon of paprika and let stand off the heat. If it is not thick enough you can just take hot water and flour make a paste and add slowly to the pot till it thickens like you like and at this point season with salt and pepper to taste. I don't add any to mine but you may want to.
