I just love soups that are filling, low calorie, and full of nutrients! Braised Chicken with Potato is all that! It’s been a family favorite recipe and I make it all the time. Just one serving of this soup will provide you with a good source of vitamin C and will naturally boost energy levels due to the carbohydrates and potassium in potatoes. Soup boosts your immunity as a result of the chicken which prevents inflammation during common infections. Overall, soup packs in great nutrients in the fresh vegetables and can be slimming. So adding more soup into a diet will only benefit!
4 medium potatoes ( I like the yellow kind)
1 chopped onion
1 peeled and grated carrot
1 Tablespoon of unsalted butter
Cut Chicken pieces, could mix breasts and thighs with bones or boneless
1 Tablespoon of tomato paste
In a iron cast pot, ( you don’t have one just a pot will work too) melt 1 Tablespoon of butter
Put Chicken pieces in pot, sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
On medium high heat sear chicken pieces, just until the outside of chicken is browned up
Take out the chicken and add in the potato to the pot, sear just until it’s browned up
Add Chicken back to the pot with potatoes
Add in chopped onion, sear for 2 mins stirring
Add in grated carrot, and stir in a tablespoon of tomato paste
Fill pot with water, just enough to cover the potato and chicken
Put on lowest heat, salt and pepper to taste and close the lid
Braise for 30-45 mins, until potato is soft.
Better to serve right away, enjoy!
