Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add oil and then chicken to heated oil. Saute chicken until starting to brown on the outside but not cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Set chicken aside and return pan to heat.
  2. Add butter and then onions with some salt to melted butter. Saute until onions are tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic and chorizo and stir until chorizo begins to break down and release oil, ~2 minutes. Pour stock and tomato paste over top and bring to a simmer. Add potatoes and thyme sprigs. Reduce heat to low-medium. Simmer until potatoes are tender, 12 to 15 minutes.
  3. When potatoes are tender, stir in mixed vegetables and chicken. Continue to simmer soup until chicken is cooked through.
  4. When soup is finished, discard thyme sprigs. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper, if needed.
  5. Serve soup with lemon wedges to squeeze over top. Enjoy!

This was incredible. So rich and delicious--perfect for cold weather! The only change I made was I added more flour to the original roux. I would estimate about 1/4 cup, but I eyeballed it and added enough until I felt the pan was very dry and the onions were clumping together.

Simple and tasty, and very flexible for using what you have on hand.

I made biscuits instead of the pie crisps, and put a biscuit at the bottom of each bowl, pouring soup over top. I also had to thicken the soup quite a bit with flour; it came out pretty watery for me.

This was delicious! I used some frozen butternut squash in with the veggies and I made a pie crust from scratch with whole grain. Super yummy!
