THE BEST LOADED BAKED POTATO SOUP

INGREDIENTS:

4 slices Chicken 
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 1/2 cups milk, or more, as needed
3 russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS:

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; set aside.

Melt butter in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk, and cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in potatoes and green onions.

Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes. Stir in cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper, to taste. If the soup is too thick, add more milk as needed until desired consistency is reached.
