Mealthy tip:

Craving chicken noodle soup? Use this recipe as a base. Simply ditch the potatoes, cook egg noodles or fettuccine in a separate pot until al dente, and ladle the chicken and broth over a bowl of cooked noodles. Top with a little chopped thyme or rosemary.

A great comfort soup that can be enjoyed any time of the day. Even when I'm not sick I like to sip the broth from this soup cause it's so good! Make sure to buy chicken backs to make the broth if you can find it.

One of my favorite soup recipes! I use red potatoes instead of russet, but other than that don't make any additional changes. The rosemary and thyme give it great flavor too.

This chicken and potato soup is my "chicken noodle soup" for when I'm sick or the weather is cold. I like to add chopped celery to it too.

I love the standard meat and potatoes dish, but I'm trying to cut out red meat and eat lighter. This chicken and potato soup is a nice compromise. I added a little lemon to my first bowl, but prefer the soup without it.

Wasn't a huge fan of the consistency of the soup so I ended up draining all the liquid and just serving the chicken and potatoes, more like a stew. The flavor was really good, so I liked that about it. It was also really easy to prepare.
