could you use chicken broth instead of chicken base + water?

Finally a basic potato soup recipe that uses all GOOD ingredients! To me, this soup was just the right consistency and all the right flavors. I've never had the Cracker Barrel version but this soup is definitely one I'd work into my weekly meal plan - simple and delicious.

Mmm! I don't normally eat at Cracker Barrel, but I may have to start...or, better yet, make this recipe myself. The flavors are very well balanced, and I love that I can taste all the hearty ingredients. A delicious lunch, dinner, or anytime soup recipe!

Prime Publishing Marketing Analyst Delicious! Mild flavor and not too heavy. Perfect for a cold, rainy day!

This soup is so warm and comforting! I love the chunks of tender potato in every spoonful.

I must state this was a good soup, but it is not a copycat of Cracker Barrel. I eat at the neighborhood Cracker Barrel at least once a week and often 2 or 3 times, because I love their daily specials. This recipe says to peel the potatoes. Cracker Barrel locally does not totally peel their red skin potatoes. I believe the peelings add some color and flavor to the soup. Thanks for the soup recipe you have provided, it is a good soup with just the right flavors of chicken, onion and celery.
