Reviews for Creamy Chicken Potato Soup
"Love this soup ! I had leftover bacon so I tossed it in also ! Yum ! My 9 year old loved it !"
"Delicious as-is, I might add some carrots next time for color."
"Overall, this is a recipe I would definitely make again. It has a good flavor but I think I will add a bit more veggies and spice to it next time. I like the creamy taste though, vs a broth base."
"Absolutely amazing soup! I used 2 cups half and half instead of milk and evaporated milk. It is to die for. I have added this to my frequent rotation."
"Very easy to make. A cross between cream of chicken soup and cream of potato. I too added a few more potatoes to the pot and used all 1% milk. Definitely a make again recipe."
"I used this recipe as a base. Yummy as is, but I like to spruce it up a bit!"
"I wanted a thick creamy soup so after cooking the potatoes, before adding the chicken, I used an immersion blender to purée about half of the potatoes. It was fantastic with warm biscuits!"
"We added a 1/4 c of slivered almonds and tasted just like Chicken Almond Soup at Sullivans Restuarant in Knoxville, TN. Excellent!!"
"I don't understand how people call themselves rating recipes,when they are changing how its made. I followed all the steps from this recipe and it was great as is. My husband always ask me to make this recipe when he's in the mood for soup."
"I added carrots and celery in with the butter and onion and did more potatoes. I used leftover chicken from a whole chicken I baked earlier, and used the broth I made from that as well. I added a can of cream of chicken soup and more salt, and it turned out great! I'm going to serve it with grated cheese."
"This is a great, easy, and quick soup. The fun part is that it provides a base to mess around. Try substituting turnips for potatoes, garlic for onions, adding chilli power etc."
"my husband is a meat and potato man. He raved over this soup. I did not use the evaporeated milk I use 2 cups of 2%milk. Creamy and easy to make. The whole family enjoyed it."
"I have made this soup quite a few times and we enjoy it. I also add 1 cup of canned or frozen corn and a pinch of poultry seasoning"
"Loved this soup. Easy to make, few ingredients, and only 5 pts. per serving for Weight Watchers. Thanks!"
"This is excellent, delicious recipe, just subsutited half an half instead. Have made this three times in a week. It won everyone over with the first spoonful. Thanks"
