Farmhouse Chicken Chowder is packed full of all the delicious and nutritious things you can pick up at a farm market.
There’s a colorful mélange of vegetables including onion, garlic, carrots, celery, parsnips, sweet and white potatoes, corn, spinach and herbs like rosemary, thyme, bay and parsley.
Swimming throughout the herby broth among all those vegetables are tender bites of juicy chicken. You can use leftover roasted chicken, a rotisserie chicken or start with raw chicken breasts. I’ve included the directions for both as well as a crockpot version.
Heavy cream adds a touch of indulgence and helps thicken the chowder up, making it rich and creamy.
There’s many a farmer come in from the field or barnyard, the lovely aroma beckoning from a mile away, to find a stick-to-your-ribs soup exactly like this one simmering away on the stove.
Don’tcha wish you were a farmer right now. . . I do.
