DIRECTIONS

In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, carrots, celery, thyme, garlic, bay leaf, salt and pepper for 10 minutes or until softened. Add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle flour over vegetables and stir to combine; pour in broth and cream. Add chicken; simmer for 30 minutes or until mixture has thickened. Stir in peas and corn. Divide evenly among soup bowls. Garlic Toast: Stir together butter, cheese, parsley and garlic until well combined. Arrange bread on baking sheet; broil for 2 minutes on one side until golden brown. Flip over and carefully spread garlic butter on untoasted side; broil for 2 minutes or until golden and bubbling. Place one on top of each soup bowl. Serve immediately. Tip: The garlic toast can also be prepared in a toaster oven, if desired. Use 35% whipping cream for a more indulgent soup, if desired.
