What others are saying
Aja A says:
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.
Greg Jones says:
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.
Sheila Long says:
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.
Jeremy Hughes says:
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.
Anthony Cohen says:
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.
