Chicken and potato soup



  • 4 chicken breasts cooked (roughly cut, they don't need to look perfect). I cooked mine in the oven on about 350 for around 30 minutes with a little olive oil spray and seasoned with Trader Joe's 'Everyday Seasoning'. Alternatively, to make this a one-pot dish, use a pre-roasted chicken from the grocery store.
  • 5 baking potatoes (cut into 1 inch pieces)
  • 10 cups chicken broth
  • 3 serrano chiles – finely chopped
  • 3 cups green cabbage – chopped
  • 2 cups corn kernels (I steamed corn and then using a knife sliced the kernels off the cob)
  • 1 small onion – chopped
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • cilantro
  • salt & pepper

Add the 10 cups of chicken stock to a large pot with the potato, onion and garlic.  Bring to the boil.  Once you can put a fork in the potatoes, but they are not mushy, add the remainder of the ingredients.  Turn the heat down to about medium and cook for a further 10 minutes. 

Once served top each bowl with a little extra cilantro.

Note:  This soup has a little kick to it so if you do not like spice, reduce the number of serrano chiles.

umm, that would be me thinking about one thing while typing another.  10 cups of broth.  I'll make an amendment, thanks for picking that up 🙂
