Healthy creamy chicken potato soup is a simple and delicious low fat hearty soup. This filling winter warmer is great for a cold winters day!
Well folks, Happy New Year!
Here’s wishing you all a healthy New Year too (and hoping it’s much better than last year!).
Now that our hangovers have passed, is there any better way than to start off the year with a fabulous bowl of this healthy creamy chicken potato soup?
Not only is it full of nutritional goodness but if you’ve started the year on a new health kick you’ll love that this creamy chicken soup tastes so creamy but yet isn’t made with any cream!
This creamy tasting chicken potato soup is the perfect comfort food.
In my version of this classic soup I’ve added some low fat soft cheese to give it a great cheesy taste.
That makes this soup an all round family favourite which is perfect not only for lunch but for dinner too.
It’s such an easy soup to make as well. Everything is done in one big saucepan. Meaning less washing up!
This healthy creamy chicken potato soup is also low in fat and gluten free too.
The classic version normally involves adding some flour to thicken it up.
I replaced the flour with soft cheese which when stirred in helps to thicken the soup along with the potato and make it all deliciously creamy tasting.
The whole recipe takes less than an hour to make and serves up to six.
Tips For How To Make Healthy Creamy Chicken Potato Soup
- I used boneless skinless chicken breasts so I didn’t have any bones to remove. You could use chicken thighs if you wanted to though.
- For the potatoes try and get ones like Maris Piper or King Edward varieties. They are easily mashable and help to thicken the soup.
- For the vegetables you could add any leftovers you might have such as swede or even add some broccoli.
- Once cooked store the soup in your fridge for 2-3 days.
- To freeze I find it’s much easier to portion up the soup into individual containers and freeze. That way you only need to remove the individual portions when you need them.
- Allow the soup to defrost first then re-heat in your microwave or on your stove top.
