Chicken Tetrazzini Soup

So, apparently the woman who created the dish known as Chicken Tetrazzini lived in San Francisco. http://http//

Well, of course I was going to turn this delicious meal into a soup! Turns out, it is a favorite in our house and I can't wait to make it again!
Here's the recipe:
2-3 chicken breasts, seasoned with garlic powder, salt, and pepper-broil and let rest, then dice

2 tbls butter

1-2 tbls olive oil

1 onion, diced

5 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup dry sherry or white wine


3-4 tbls fresh herbs-lemon thyme, oregano, flat leaf parsley

1 cup heavy cream

1 can cream of chicken soup

32 oz chicken broth

zest and juice of 1 lemon

Saute onions in butter and olive oil. When soft and transparent, add garlic and cook about 1 minute Add about 1/2 cup of dry sherry or white wine, reduce for about 10 minutes.
Add heavy cream and cream of chicken soup to onion mixture. Bring to a low boil and add a few dashes of nutmeg. Add fresh herbs and diced chicken. Bring to a boil. Transfer mixture to a slow cooker and add 32 oz of chicken broth and the zest and juice of a lemon. Turn to low and enjoy whenever!
