Creamy Olive Soup. This is a delicious and elegant soup and with white wine, both black and pimento-stuffed olives, and cream, is a knockout anytime of year. This can be served as a first course, or add some chicken to make a heartier entrée.
Calling all olive aficionados. To me, this is classic country inn fare. Not hip or bizarre, not for the fat gram conscious, yet just delicious and interesting enough to be out of the ordinary.
The flavors of chicken breast and white wine welcome green and black olives to mix. Half and half makes it creamy and it just seems to say celebratory and special.

The argument for making Homemade Chicken Stock
The foundation of a good soup is always the stock. And more important than with anything else, homemade stock is always more flavorful and special than purchased.
Stock is a flavorful liquid in which meat, fowl, or vegetables have been cooked, and to which they have been given their essence. It’s a component that makes soup … soup.
Even though stocks can take some time to make, they are not, as a rule time consuming in active preparation. So, if you can take an afternoon and dedicate the time to make your own chicken stock, please do. You can store it away in containers in the freezer to keep you warm all Winter long with beautiful soups.
Enough for two meals, I changed it up a bit for leftovers and made it a triple olive soup with a sprinkle of sliced green olives stuffed with jalapenos.
With that said, let’s take a look at this incredible Olive Soup Recipe.
