This Clean and Comforting Chicken Chowder is about to be your new favorite reciep!

Sometimes you just need a nice helping of good ol’ comfort food. If you do it right comfort food can be good for your body as well as your soul. Can’t complain about that right?

There are several things going for this particular soup. To start with, it’s the ultimate comfort dish! Whenever anyone we know is going through a hard time or needs a little love we take them a big pan of this glorious chowder. However, there are other benefits in the actual ingredients!

Remember, one of the most important aspects of Clean Eating is to keep your food organic. Whenever I use dairy I make sure it is raw as well. It is a healthy fat and has beneficial enzymes among other things. When you leave the skin and bones in the chicken as you cook it, it adds collagen which is good for your bones, joints and overall health.

As long as you keep your ingredients organic there is no reason you shouldn’t cook up this soup from time to time. Besides… when your soul is happy your body is happy too πŸ˜‰

But enough talk! Let’s get right to this glorious Clean and Comforting Chicken Chowder.

Clean and Comforting Chicken Chowder

2 chicken breasts with the skin and bones
8 carrots, sliced
6 large potatoes, chopped
6 stalks celery, sliced
2 cubes of butter
Water
2-4 cups cream
ΒΌ – Β½ cups cornstarch

Place chicken in a sauce pan and barely cover with water. Boil gently until cooked and tender. Remove from heat and set aside. Be sure to reserve the liquid you cooked the chicken in.

SautΓ© carrots, and celery in butter for a few minutes, I like to let them brown a little to add flavor. Shred the chicken and remove the bones and skin. Combine all ingredients, except cream and cornstarch, in a large sauce pan. Make sure to include the liquid the chicken was cooked in for extra flavor. You may need a little extra water to fully cover the vegetables. Let cook until veggies are tender.

Stir cornstarch into cream and whisk together. Quickly stir cornstarch mixture into chowder and stir until thickened.
