This was the most onion-y soup ever. So much so that the shirt I was wearing when I made it was, well, stinky! It smelled very strongly of onions and soup. But, wow oh wow, what a tasty soup, one of my all time favorites for sure. If you like a flavorful soup or if you like French Onion soup you will love this recipe. The soup is filled, I mean absolutely brimming with veggies, chicken, mushrooms, and of course onions. Cooking a whole chicken in water for several hours with fresh herbs lends the soup a depth of flavor. Sauteing the mushrooms and onions seals their tastes and assures that they will not be overcooked.
