Potato soup with chicken and carrots

I am a sucker for good potato soup. Its warm and creamy. The perfect cold weather food. So I wanted to try adding some things to this already wonderful dish.

What you’ll need:

1 lb chicken (cut and cooked…I threw mine into a foil packet in the oven with some seasons….juicy)

2 cans cream of chicken soup

1 pack cream cheese (softened)

14 oz chicken broth

Carrors (this depends on how much is too much for your taste…I love carrots so I added quite a bit)

6 to 8 large potatoes (peeled and diced)

Boil your potatoes.

Once done take half of them and mash them. Like you normally would. This time I used a little bit of butter and heavy cream because I wanted it extra creamy….this helps to thicken the soup.

Take the other half into a pot with the broth, cream of chicken soup and the carrots. Let this simmer for just a bit. Stirring occasionally.

Add the mashed potatoes.

Slowly add the cream cheese stirring to mix it it.

Let this cook for about 15 to 20 mins.

Then TADA soup.
