Salad Menu - Braised Chicken with Potato

Braised Chicken with Potato

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! 

Ingredients

  • 4 medium potatoes ( I like the yellow kind)

  • 1 chopped onion

  • 1 peeled and grated carrot

  • 1 Tablespoon of unsalted butter

  • Salt/Pepper

  • Cut Chicken pieces, could mix breasts and thighs with bones or boneless

  • 1 Tablespoon of tomato paste

How To:

  • 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.
