Kroger Bargain recipe of the week- Chicken and potato soup

Bargain Meal of the Week

This soup is perfect for getting in protein, veggies and some dairy into little tummy's. This is such a simple and quick recipe. Feel free to add your own substitutions such as cream instead of milk or cheddar cheese. With some warm bread from the oven you are all set for a cozy meal! Happy Eating!

Check out Stretching a Buck deals here to see more deals at Kroger. I will not expense spices/oils since most of us have them on hand.
