  • Prick potatoes with a fork and wrap each potato in aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until potatoes are tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Cool potatoes until easily handled; scoop insides from skins and discard skins.

  • Place chicken in a bowl and add enough olive oil to coat; add 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and toss to coat.

  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir chicken until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Toss onion, carrots, and celery with enough olive oil to coat in a bowl.

  • Heat a skillet over medium-low heat; cook and stir onion mixture until tender, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-heat. Stir flour into melted butter and cook until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour milk, about 1/4 cup at a time, into butter-flour mixture; cook, stirring constantly, until sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes.

  • Stir cooked potato, chicken, onion mixture, chicken stock, broccoli, 1/2 of the bacon bits, 1/2 of the green onions, and 4 ounces of the Cheddar cheese into the sauce. Cook soup until heated through and broccoli is tender, about 10 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Stir sour cream into soup and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.

  • Ladle soup into serving bowls and top with remaining bacon, green onions, and Cheddar cheese.

Cook's Notes:

Soup will continue to thicken as it cools down. If you like your soup really thick, let it cool about 30 minutes before serving.

Great flavor! It's a keeper. I used a half lb. of bacon sautéeing the veggies in the grease. I kept the skins on the potatoes and did the roux x3. Cheese x4, chicken stock 1 litre. More salt and pepper. Basically I made it bigger. We loved it! Thx for recipe Read More

This recipe makes good soup. While I kept all ingredients basically the same I had already cooked potatoes and chicken on hand which allowed me to save some steps a lot of time and less washing up. I needed some extra potatoes but I just cut up some raw potatoes in very small dice and added it to the pot. At step #6 I put the oil in the pan (rather than mixing with the veggies first) and tossed the veggies until tender. At Step #8 I added the flour to the same pot to start the roux added the flour then the milk and cooked until thickened. Followed by steps 9 & 10. Probably next time I wouldn't bother with the bacon. It didn't seem to provide a huge amount of flavour. A very hearty soup. I enjoyed it very much. Read More

I made this last night for my boys. It was very tasty. I started late so I put my slow cooker on high for an hour and the low for 4 and it was done. I think I would add more chicken maybe dark meet as the white meat gets so dry. This is a keeper. One thing I want is fast and easy and able to use things I have on hand. Read More

I loved this recipe but I did change one thing. Rather than using olive oil, I used the bacon fat to sautee the chicken n veggies for extra flavor! And it came out awesome! Thanks for the recipe xoxo Read More

1) I totally simplified this recipe and it turned out great. I cooked it all in one pot except for the roux. Diced the bacon/ fried it / added the chicken. When pink gone, added the vegetables. I used hash browns in place of baked potatoes. I found the roux very thick, so added more chicken stock. Delicious. 2) When reheating, I added more stock and more broccoli. Read More

Absolutely wonderful. Wasn't sure about baking the potatoes then adding them but very happy with the result. Will certainly be making this again. Read More

I sort of followed the recipe but added my own touch. I don't normally keep celery on hand so I added a can of cream of celery and an extra cup of chicken broth. I also added more vegetables then called for in the recipe. I didn't have sour cream on hand (unusual) so didn't use it. I was still very happy with the results. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

I had a bunch of baked potatoes left from a potato bar I hosted so this soup seemed like a great way to re purpose the leftover potatoes and topping. Except that my potatoes and chicken was already cooked I made as written and it was a huge hit. Read More

I made this exactly according to the recipe. My husband loved it - said it was the best potato soup I've ever made! Next time I would shred the chicken - but otherwise it's a perfect hearty meal! Read More
