Easy Potato Soup Recipe Using Instant Potatoes on the stovetop. So quick!!

I hadn’t gone grocery shopping in DAYS! Ok… WEEKS! Things were getting pretty slim in the house.

I knew I had leftover chicken tenders in the refrigerator, and wanted to utilize them to make something different so I didn’t hear:

Chicken tenders AGAIN!?

from my kids.

Easy Potato Soup: Quick Stovetop Recipe

Well we all know how I feel about slightly homemade recipes. (Recipes that are made at home, but utilize some store bought ingredients and shortcuts to make things quick and easy. Make sure you sign up to be notified when my new Slightly Homemade Dinners Cookbook is released soon!)

So when I saw the instant potato package in the pantry, I knew right away that I should utilize those in some way with the chicken. Who knew adding chicken broth and a little heavy cream to this would make a crazy quick and tasty soup for dinner!

NOTE: You DO NOT have to use chicken for this soup like I did. (Or I would call this Easy Chicken Potato Soup) But I found it a great way to add some protein and texture to the soup using leftovers.

Using instant potatoes to make a stovetop potato soup is sooo easy!

NOTE: I believe it’s HIGHLY important to use a loaded or supreme package of instant potatoes, or else you may need to add cheese, spices, sour cream, and other ingredients to give this soup some flavor.
