Make some fresh garlic bread and a salad - perfect cool fall dinner! My family prefers the cream of chicken soup over the cream of mushroom soup in this recipe. My friends love it when I show up with this creamy soup!

Like Brenda, your friends will love it when you prepare this tasty soup. It's creamy with chunks of potato in every bite. We love the depth of flavor the onions and garlic powder adds to this simple soup recipe. We used cream of chicken soup in ours but can't wait to try it with cream of mushroom next time.
