Chicken and Sweet-Potato Chowder

Post by Surprise »

OK Gang, as we start a new year of Frostbite shore lunches Randy has to have the Heart Healthy approach to lake dining.

CRUNCHY, GREASY, SALTY led me to my undoing :cry:

This is EASY and very tasty. Tried at home Kathy gave it two thumbs up!


Chicken & Sweet-Potato Chowder

2 Tablespoons Olive oil

1 Pound skinless, boneless chicken breast and thighs, cut into 1 inch pieces

1 Medium onion, finely chopped

3 Medium leeks cleaned, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced. about 4-5 cups

3 cups homemade chicken stock or low sodium canned

2 Medium large Sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch dice

2 Tablespoons sliced fresh sage

3 Tablespoons chopped Flat leaf parsley

1 Bay Leaf

1/4 cup Fresh grated Parmesan Cheese

1 cup whole milk

Salt & Fresh ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the chicken and cook over moderately high heat, about 2 minutes. Remove and transfer to a plate.
Add the onion and leeks and cook stirring often until softened about 5 minutes. Add the sweet potato and cook 3 minutes. Add the stock, 1 tablespoon sage, 2 tablespoons parsley, bay leaf, a grind of black pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove bay leaf. With a hand blender give a few pulses to puree up a bit of the mix or remove about 1 1/2 cups and puree in a blender. Add back to the pot. Add the chicken and any pan juices, reheat and add the milk. Adjust the seasoning.

Serve. Plate with a bit of reserved sage, parsley, grated Parmesan and a grind of Pepper.
