about 2 chicken breasts, chopped into 1” pieces
~1 ½ cups, peeled and chopped
peeled and chopped
plus more to taste
coarse ground pepper
heavy whipping cream
Optional garnishes: chopped parsley
shredded cheese, bacon crumbles
Heat 1 Tbs cooking oil in a Dutch oven or large pot.
Add chicken and cook until chicken has been cooked through, about 5 minutes. Take out and set aside.
Pour in an additional 1 Tbs oil to the same pan and cook onion, carrots, and bell pepper until tender, about 5-7 minutes.
Stir in chicken broth, potatoes, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.
Bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn down heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add chicken back into the pot and allow to heat through.
In a separate bowl, combine cornstarch with heavy whipping cream and whisk until all the lumps are gone or mostly gone. Pour cornstarch mixture into chowder and stir.
Take off heat and stir in cheese until melted and the mixture has thickened.
Serve warm and garnish with parsley, shredded cheese, and bacon crumbles (optional).
Make this soup in a heavy bottomed pan. It will distribute the heat more efficiently and won't scorch the bottom of the soup.
Feel free to add in other veggies that you have in your fridge.
Serve the chowder loaded with shredded cheese, bacon bits and chopped parsley.
