Chicken, Broccoli, and Potato Soup

My husband made this midweek for dinner when we had some broccoli that needed using up stat. Since I’m not having to suck dinner up through a straw anymore, he made this both creamy and chunky so it made a good filling dinner with some thick slices of french bread. I added some shredded cheese after I took the picture and it was delicious! The next night I made some super-easy Mexican rice to go with our chicken tacos, so I’ll share that in the next few days for the upcoming Cinco de Mayo.

Chicken, Broccoli, and Potato Soup

4-6 cups homemade chicken broth
1 chicken breast, cooked and chopped
3 potatoes, cubed
2 small heads broccoli, cut into small florets
1/2 onion, chopped
Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb
Black pepper

My husband first made the chicken broth by cooking the chicken breast covered with water and fresh veggies thrown in. You can read the full recipe here: Homemade Chicken Broth. After he strained the broth, he let the chicken breast cool a bit then chopped into bite size pieces and set aside. Next he added the rest of the vegetables and spices to taste into a soup pot with the broth.  He simmered the veggies until the potatoes were tender, for about 45 minutes. Then he ladled half of the soup into our giant blender and pureed until smooth. He poured the mixture back into the soup pot, then kept warm until dinner. Fantastic!
