creamy chicken & potato soup {recipe}

good morning y'all!
i am not sure how the weather is in your part of the world, but it's "trying" to get chilly here in the south. i love to make chowders, chilies & soups for football weekends. i love to smell it all day while it simmers in the crock pot! ahhhhh

while this doesn't have to simmer, it's a simple & super quick soup!
i have stripped it from many of the ingredients to keep it plain & healthy.
here is the original version.

ingredients:
3 cups organic low sodium chicken broth
2-3 chicken breasts (i pulled apart an all natural rotisserie chicken)
1/4 whole wheat flour
1 cup horizons fat free milk
1 cup reduced fat evaporated milk
salt/pepper/cayenne (to your taste)

directions:
-in a dutch oven, stir in broth & potatoes
-bring to a boil
-reduce heat, cover & simmer for 10-15 min (or til potatoes are tender)
-stir in chicken
-salt/pepper/cayenne to your liking

in separate sauce pan over med heat:
-combine flour & fat free milk, stir until smooth
-add evaporated milk
-bring to boil, stir for 2 min.
-add to dutch oven
-simmer 5 more minutes

*my husband added cheese to his, that grossed me out but he said it was delish :)
