How to Make It

Step 1    

In a medium saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a boil with the dried mushrooms. Cover the saucepan and remove from the heat.

Step 2    

Melt the butter in another medium saucepan. Add the onion and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the sliced cremini and cook until tender and their liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Season the cremini with salt and white pepper and stir in the flour. Strain the stock into the saucepan, pressing hard on the solids with the back of a spoon. Stir the soy sauce into the mushroom soup, cover partially, and simmer until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.

Step 3    

Transfer half of the mushroom soup to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Return the puree to the saucepan. Add the chicken pieces and simmer the soup until the chicken is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the half-and-half and port and simmer the soup for 1 minute longer. Stir in the parsley, ladle the soup into bowls and serve right away.
