"It was a big story and yesterday’s soup. Who cares?" -Willard Scott, Weatherman

The refrigerator light goes on...

This is a quick and easy soup. It does take a bit of time to simmer - just long enough to watch Jeopardy - but it’s perfect on a cold night: warm, creamy and really filling. All of that with 5 grams of fiber and tons of vitamins.


 

Creamy Chicken and Potato Soup

Servings: 4 | Serving size: 2 cups

Cooking Time: 60 Minutes

This recipe can easily be multiplied, and as with almost all soups, this recipe is better the next day.

2 tsp olive oil
1 large red onion (diced)
2 large carrots (peeled and diced)
1 cloves garlic (minced)
2 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp salt
1 lb Yukon Gold potatoes (cut into 1 inch cubes)
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast (cut into 1/2 inch cubes)
1 cup 2% milk
3 Tbsp fresh dill

Place the olive oil in a large stock pot over medium heat. Add the red onion and cook for about 3 minutes.

Add the carrots and garlic and cook for another 5 minutes until the onions begin to turn translucent.

Add the chicken stock, water, salt and potatoes. Season with pepper and reduce the heat to low.

Simmer for about 50 minutes. Stir occasionally. Cook until the potatoes are soft and beginning to fall apart.

Add the chicken breast and fresh dill. Stir and then slowly ad the milk. Cook for another ten minutes.

Serve.
