Everyone loves a one pot recipe. It literally makes like so easy, especially when you need to get a meal on the table with little hassle and a quick simple clean up. Soups are a great one pot kind of meal. You can add everything and anything to your soups. It is a balanced meal all in one, which is awesome!!! You only have to make this one recipe and you are done cooking. HELLO EASY!
My mom is great at making soups. I usually go over and eat with my parents when she makes soups, or take some for lunch. She is a great soup chef haha! So this recipe is a combination of my mom's chicken and potato soup with a bit of a flare to it. I like to add textures and colors to my dishes so with the addition of kale and the very fall seasonal butternut squash that I am seriously obsessed with right now this recipe is a simple and definitely yummy warming meal. Also now that we are the fall chilly months the temperature is dropping and the colds are approaching. Always having a soup recipe ready to go is a must. So stay warm and cozy with this one pot chicken soup recipe.
