Mushroom Soup with Chicken (Tavuklu Mantar Corbasi)

½ chicken breast
2 cups milk
1 carrot, chopped
½ lb ( 4-5 ) button mushroom, sliced
½ stick butter (50-65 gr)
2 Tbsp flour, heaping
1 Tbsp salt (for soup)
1 tsp salt (for boiling chicken)
½ bunch of fresh dill, thinly chopped or 1 tsp of dried dill (optional)
2 Tbsp cooking oil

Boil the chicken breast with the chopped carrots until they are both soft and tender with adding 1 tsp salt. When it’s done, pour the remained water in a bowl for using it as the chicken stock in the soup.
After the cooked chicken breast cools a little, cut it into small pieces.
Meanwhile, in a skillet place the butter and sliced mushrooms. You can sprinkle a pinch of salt on them. Saute them on a low-medium heat, till they get soft and tender, for about 8-10 minutes.
In a large pot, add the oil and flour and stir continuously while cooking on low- medium heat, for about 2-3 minutes. When the flour and oil mixture starts to change in color, add milk, salt and the chicken stock when you set apart before. Stir well in order to obtain a smooth creamy soup.
Finally add the chicken pieces, carrots and cooked mushrooms into the soup. Then cook for about 8- 10 minutes stirring occasionally (optional). When it’s done sprinkle with dill on top before serving.
Serve it while still hot or warm.
ENJOY
