This is one delicious soup I concocted with veggies I needed to get use up! But, don't take my word for it, give it a try...It was so savory, creamy - downright heartwarming ( hence the name )...

I have many potato soups posted, but this is the first with chicken...I loved that little addition...

Enjoy!
