Creamy Chicken Broccoli Baked Potato Soup

admin June 6, 2013

Ohhhh creamy soups…how I love you.  Especially this Creamy Chicken Broccoli Baked Potato Soup.  (In case this one isn’t your thing, try our Shrimp Bisque.  Or maybe make both.  Whatever you prefer.  The more creamy soups, the better.)

In my opinion, soup is good all the time!  So no excuses if it’s still warm where you are.  Why not add some broccoli (so healthy and delicious) and some chicken (a little extra protein) to create a delicious twist on an old favorite?  So I did.

Bake the potatoes ahead of time; I baked mine while I was also baking breakfast muffins.  When all the batches of muffins were done, so were the potatoes.  You can bake them the night before while you’re making dinner and store them in the fridge.  Keep the skins, too, and I’ll show you what to do with those next week!  (Make your own baked potato skins.  So worth it.)

Stir the soup, and add the milk.  If the soup is not as thick as you want, whisk a little flour into the cold milk before adding it to thicken the soup further.

Serve the soup as soon as the potato is heated through and it is as thick as you want.  Less than five minutes after adding the final ingredients!  Yes, the soup comes together quickly.

Add some cooked, crumbled bacon, shredded cheddar, and/or green onions to the top of the soup.  Delicious.

  3. This looks yummy! Could you verify the amount of chicken – should that be 1/4 of a 6 oz. chicken breast? Fourteen sounds like too much, but 1/4 doesn’t seem like enough. Thanks!
