Creamy Peanut Soup

This recipe looked so easy and the picture online looked so good, I knew I had to try it. I combined all the ingredients (except the half-and-half) and it just didn’t look like much, so I doubled the recipe. This turned out really good, although it was a little salty. I am wondering if that was from the peanut butter or the “chicken” broth? It wasn’t so salty you couldn’t eat it, but I definitely didn’t need to add the extra salt. I thought for sure Liam would love this, but he didn’t. Toby did.
