    Creamy Chicken-Pasta Soup

    J. Alexander's, Troy, MI

    3 Tbsp butter
    4 ounces button mushrooms, sliced
    1 cup sliced celery
    1 cup shredded carrots (about 2 medium)
    1 medium onion, chopped
    3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
    6 cups chicken stock or canned low-salt chicken broth
    1-1/2 cups half-and-half
    2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
    1-1/2 lbs. chicken tenders, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    1 cup penne pasta
    1/4 lb. sugar snap peas, halved diagonally
    3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

    Melt butter in heavy large pot over medium heat. Add mushrooms, celery, carrots and onion. Cook until celery and onion are tender, about 5 minutes. Add flour and cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Gradually mix in chicken stock.

    Bring soup to simmer, stirring frequently. Add half-and-half and chopped parsley and simmer 5 minutes. Add chicken tenders and simmer until cooked through, about 5 minutes. (Chicken soup can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cool slightly. Cover and refrigerate.)

    Cook penne pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite. Drain pasta. Bring chicken soup to simmer. Mix in cooked pasta and sugar snap peas and simmer 2 minutes. Mix in lemon juice; season to taste with salt and pepper.

    Makes 6 main course servings.
