Chicken Potato Soup Recipe

This Chicken Potato Soup Recipe is really great for using the leftover grilled chicken breasts. It is one of the easy soup recipes and with the added Bacon, it is super tasty.

Not only it is pretty easy to make but it is also one of the healthy soup recipes thanks to potatoes and grilled chicken. I restricted this chicken potato soup recipe on the thin side but you can easily thicken it up by adding a little cornstarch. You can also decrease the broth/stock by 1 cup.

If you do not have any leftover grilled chicken for this soup recipe, you can cook about 1.5 pounds of chicken breast for this recipe. You can also use the rotisserie chicken and I bet this would definitely be super tasty! I use the red potatoes with skin on but before using them we scrub them pretty well with the brush. You can use your favorite potatoes in this soup recipe.
