1 bay leaf
1 sprig fresh thyme
1 sprig fresh tarragon
3 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 medium carrot, finely chopped
2 cans (16 ounces each) whole potatoes, drained, divided

1/2 cup half-and-half cream

Tie the bay leaf, thyme and tarragon in a bundle. Place in a medium saucepan with the broth, onion and carrot.
