Chicken, celery and potato soup

Lunch | March 18, 2015 | By

I may be pinning Spring related products on Pinterest and thinking about colourful fresh salads, but the reality is it’s still cold here in NI and comforting soups are very much on top of my agenda. Today’s recipe is for a creamy potato, celery and chicken soup. It is said that Chicken is good at warding off the common cold and as for potatoes…well I could eat potatoes with everything! So if it’s still freezing in March where you are, or you have the sniffles – get making this soup!
