Easy Leftover Baked Potato Chicken Soup, Hot Healthy Winter Soup Recipe.

Why waste food? Anytime you can use leftovers you are saving money on your grocery bill. It's ashamed to let good food go in the garbage. This soup is one of the soups I have that leftovers can be used. This is a great hot winter soup on a cold winter day. It’s an easy soup to make and you can use leftover potatoes or chicken/turkey to make it. We often have baked potatoes and I will make extra for this soup. We also have such big potatoes because we get them right out of the fields. They are just too big for us to eat the whole thing. I cut in half and save part of it.

It's a great winter soup but if you like soup anytime like I do it's good all year long. When it's snowing outside and you come home from work in this cold weather soup is so good and fewer calories will warm your tummy. It's also a fast soup to make.

Recipe


Easy Left Over Baked Potato Chicken Soup

4 pieces of cooked chicken or turkey (4 thighs) or just chicken you have leftover cut in pieces or leftover rotisserie chicken.

2 cans of low fat chicken broth

1 can of beef broth

1 pkg. of small mushrooms I used the white

½ package of frozen broccoli.

1 to 11/2 large baked potato (leftover)

1 tbsp. of Italian seasoning

1 tbsp. sweet basil

Salt and pepper to taste

First I put the mushrooms in the beef broth in a pan on the stove and boil until the broth is part way gone. Do not cut up mushrooms leave whole.

Take leftover large baked potatoes or just bake some potatoes bake in microwave whichever way you do then skin them and cut in chunks?

Cook broccoli in microwave in some butter until done

Place mushrooms and juice, baked potatoes, broccoli with butter and chicken in chicken broth on the stove

Bring to boil lower heat and cook for a short time but not so long to use up the broth more broth can be added if needed or this soup can be just heated in the microwave.

Everything is already cooked so it doesn't have to be cooked a long time. My very favorite thing about this soup is it’s easy for one thing and the other is the mushrooms. I don’t really like mushrooms I take them off of pizza, but I love them when cooked this way.

The broth in this soup is delicious after all the items are cooked in it.

Hint

Here’s a hint for this soup. I know many people don't like broccoli so it can be substituted for corn or carrots anything you want. You can also use leftover vegetables of any kind.

HINT:

Don't forget if you have a chicken carcass be sure to cook it up with vegetables such as celery, onions and carrots and make a chicken or turkey broth from it. I put mine in a jar and place it in the freezer for my next batch of soup.

HINT:

If you don't like all the fat in a broth, place in the refrigerator and all the fat will come to the top then just skim it off the top and you will have a broth with very little fat.

Thanks for the recipe moonlake. Soups are so handy and there are always leftovers. Making this today. It's been raining here for days - readying for winter.

JayeWisdom, Thank you for stopping by. I don't like to throw away food. I try to make soup if I can. Thanks for the vote.

I can eat soup any time--even when the temp is nearing 100 degrees outdoors. I routinely use up bits of veggies by making soup. Food is too expensive to waste, and fresh produce doesn't stay fresh very long.

I like soup year around. I have used baked potatoes in my soup previously and they're very good so long as they're not overdone, and then they become mashed potato soup. ;) This looks yummy and I wish I could make some right now, but in fact I should be sleeping as I must get up in just a couple of hours for work. Gave you 5 stars, pinned this article to my 'Soups, Sandwiches, and Casseroles' board, and voting it up, useful and will share with my followers.

Whenever we would go camping, my Dad would make potato soup over the campfire. It is a very happy memory for me. I agree that we should not waste food. It is far better to make soup from it! Great recipe.

Peggy W, Thank you Peggy I appreciated your stopping by and very much appreciate the sharing. Sometimes I will freeze vegetables or meat left over through the week and make a pot of soup on the week-end. The kids show up I have enough or them.

You are a girl after my own heart. I also grew up learning not to waste food. So many things can be added when making a soup. Mine are seldom the same because it all depends what I have on hand. Your tips (hints) at the end are good ones. I do the same thing using carcasses and refrigerating soups or broths and then skim the fat. This time...sharing! :)

This is such an easy soup and I love leaving the mushrooms whole they just seem to have more flavor that way. Thanks Peggy for stopping by and leaving a comment.
