Creamy Chicken Potato Soup Recipe

Creamy Chicken Potato Soup Recipe

Any time I serve this thick comforting soup, I'm asking for the recipe. Because it is loaded with chunks of potatoes and chicken, no one suspects that it's low in fat. -Carla Reid of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

"This is very good. I was looking for a recipe to use up one cup of evaporated milk I had left over, and this is a winner. Simple but tasty. I added one chopped carrot with the onion, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I will be making this again."

"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."

"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 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!"

"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."
