Chicken Potato Soup
Grumpy To Happy!

Chicken Potato Soup

What inspired this chicken potato soup recipe?

Well, I was out grocery shopping one time looking for a few special veggies. But I had no luck because I couldn’t find anything I wanted.

I got home just a little grumpy. I looked around my kitchen to see what I could do and realized I had enough ingredients for this soup. (I have a reasonably well stocked kitchen of the basics!) So I put all the ingredients together in front of me and got creative!

It’s amazing what you can put together with simple and basic ingredients and seasonings.

This easy to make soup recipe was a hit with my Chef and I know it’ll be a hit with you and the special people in your life. Give it a try!!

Ingredients (Serves a chicken and a potato!):

2 chicken breasts
2 medium potatoes
1 medium onion

5-6 small carrots

2 tablespoons of olive oil
1-3 cups  of chicken broth
Salt and Pepper to taste
Green onion to sprinkle your soup

The Second Main Ingredient

Add 1 cup of chicken broth. Cook for about 15 minutes until soft.

Adding that Broth!

If you find that your liquid is ‘thinning out’ too much, just add more of the chicken broth you have on reserve. Finally add the Brussels sprouts and cook for another 10-15 minutes on a medium heat until soft.

After that you’re ready to serve. But first, see my Chef's tips below for some seasoning ideas!

My Chef's Tips:

A light salad always starts any soup meal off right!

Of course some very light spice is nice too: simple salt and pepper. Italian herb seasoning works wonderfully with this!

This chicken potato soup is worth the effort and tastes great. Double or triple the ingredients and you have enough leftovers for the week!
