Soup, Potato

I've been looking for a way to start this blog for well....gosh how long has it been?...2 months? maybe more?
Nothing would come. I've not forgotten you; more like the words have forgotten me.

So I'm simply going to post a recipe that I made 2 weeks ago. My friend Amy Beasly requested it. She thought it was delicious, and said it would be "A great Game Day Food". She is so funny!

Potato Soup with chicken and white beans:

1 potato/person, peeled and cubed
1 chicken breast/ person, frozen
1 onion/4 people, chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 can of white beans or 2 if you like the beans
Chicken stock enough to cover the potatos and chicken
1 nob of butter

Sautee the onion and garlic in the butter until the onions are translucent. Add the potatoes and chicken. Cover with the stock and bring to a boil. Boil until the potatoes are fork tender.

Remove the chicken and set aside. In small batches (trust me), pour the potatoes and broth into a blender and process until smooth. I had to have an extra bowl for this since i did it in batches. One day maybe I will have one of those fancy hand blenders that you just stick in the pot! What a dream!

Pour the smooth soup back into your pot and put back on the stove on low to keep warm.

Go back to your chicken. Cut it into cubes and throw back into the pot. Mine was perfect, but if yours still has some pink just cook it a little longer in the soup. Add the can of white beans.

Put into bowls, top with cheese if you like, and enjoy!
