Chicken, Potato and Leek Soup

Submitted by: THEKNIGHT571

Introduction

Based on the Potato Leek soup in the book Diabetes for Dummies. This makes a large batch, but given the calories per serving, you could have 2 servings for a meal or take the lefovers for lunch, etc. Based on the Potato Leek soup in the book Diabetes for Dummies.

Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    3 Leeks, chopped and rinsed (discard the dark green part)

    3 cloves Garlic

    6-8 cups potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (bigger or smaller depending on preference)

    10 cups low-sodium chicken broth

    1/2 tsp pepper (more or less to taste)

    1/4 tsp salt (more or less to taste)

    1 Roterisserie Chicken skin removed and meat roughly broken up. Yeilds about 1 pound of meat (can use all breast meat, or whatever chicken you have available)

    16oz bag Frozen Peas and Carrots

Directions

Coat large pot (5 Quart minimum) with cooking spray and sautee the leeks and garlic over medium heat until translucent.

Add potatoes and chicken broth bring to a boil, then simmer until the potatoes are fork tender.

Remove approximately half of the potatoes and mash. (or place in blender with some of the liquid)

Return mashed (or blended) potatoes to the pot and mix well.

Mix in salt, pepper, chicken and vegetables, bring to boil and simmer for another 5-10 minutes to heat chicken and vegetables.

Yields approximately 10 (2 cup) servings. (I based this on the fact that this recipe just about fills my 5qt dutch oven...and the bowls we use hold about 2 cups....and most of the time 1 bowl is enough for us. "Your mileage may vary")
