Winter is coming to an end, but there is still enough chill in the air to enjoy a hearty bowl of soup. I had some ground chicken breast and potatoes that needed to be used up, so I decided to make some soup. Soup is such a wonderful way to use up ingredients, and you can really get creative. I decided to make a comforting soup that would resemble a creamy potato soup, but with nice chunks of chicken. I was very happy with the way it turned out, and I hope you all like it too! It is a quick and easy soup, and can be made start to finish in less than 45 minutes! It has simple flavors, but is delicious and comforting.
This soup reminds me of eating creamy mashed potatoes and chicken. It is hearty, filling, and delicious!
- 2 ½ cups chicken stock
- 1 lb. ground chicken breast
- 2 medium russet potatoes
- 1/3 yellow onion
- 1 medium shallot clove
- 1 large garlic clove
- 1/2 cup heavy cream (optional)
- 1 to 2 tsp. kosher salt
- extra virgin olive oil for cooking meat and veggies
# 1 Add chives and cheese.
# 2 This is a great make-ahead soup. You will need to add a little water while re-heating. You can also freeze for longer storage.
# 3 This soup is a meal in itself, and can be heavy in large quantities. Serve as a side with a salad or green veggies to balance the meal.
#4 Leave out the cream if you are watching your waistline. This soup is delicious without the cream as well.
