Tender-crisp peas add a bright bite to this comfort food staple. Serve with warm biscuits.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 6 1/2 cups broth to a simmer in a medium pot over high heat. Add chicken, cover, and reduce heat to maintain a very gentle simmer. Poach until chicken is cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate; let cool slightly.

Step 2

Add green onions and carrots to broth, increase heat to medium, and simmer until green onions are just tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Add pasta and simmer until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Meanwhile, shred chicken from bones.

Step 3

Stir chicken, cream, snap peas, parsley, salt, and pepper into soup. Remove from heat and let stand a couple of minutes until snap peas are bright green. Add more broth if you like. Stir in tarragon and ladle into bowls.

Fresh, colorful and tasty. Also not too difficult to make. The only change I made was to use dried tarragon instead of fresh since it wasn't available at the market. Still delicious. I would definitely make this soup again.
