    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 cups potatoes, peeled and cut
    • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can chicken broth (regular or reduced fat)
    • salt and pepper, to taste (the broth has enough salt for most people but taste them first and season if you wish)


    1. 1
      Boil potatoes until tender and drain well.
    2. 2
      Combine potatoes and broth in a bowl and mash to desired consistency.
    3. 3
      Season with salt and pepper if desired.
    4. 4
      Tip: For a 'buttery' look without the butter, add a few granules of chicken bouillon- Thanks SusieQusie! You could also add some butter flavored granules like Butter Buds or Molly McButter).

      Very good! Boiled the potatoes in vegetable broth, drained the potatoes, and then added broth back in when mashing. Thanks!

      I have made these twice now and I absolutely LOVE them! Reserving the chicken broth and using it to mash the potatoes instead of butter and milk or cream is just phenominal! The last time I made them, I stirred in Ranch Dressing and Seasoning Mix to taste (about a Tablespoon) and had the best ranch potatoes I've EVER had...and because it has dried buttermilk powder in it, there is no reason to add sour cream, so I stayed true to your skinny recipe! They also look "buttery" if you start with yukon gold potatoes. I just can't believe there is a delicious, healthy way to eat potatoes! Thanks so much!!!!!

      We've made these a couple of times now, and they are great! We don't peel the potatoes. This adds fiber and the nutrients that are found in the skin. I also add 2 tablespoons of light Smart Balance Spread. However, I could leave that out to further reduce the calories and the potatoes would still taste great. Also, do not add the broth all at one time. Different types of potatoes need more or less liquid. Also, salt your potatoes when they are cooking to get more flavor. Thanks for sharing!
