Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion minced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 5 teaspoons roughly chopped fresh thyme (or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped freshly parsley (or 1 teaspoon dried)
  • 2 Yukon gold potatoes cut into 1/4-inch pieces (about 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 cups cooked chicken diced or shredded
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag frozen peas and carrots
  • Buttermilk biscuits for serving

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large Dutch oven or soup pot over medium heat until it begins to shimmer. Add the onion and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until translucent and tender.
  • Add the garlic, thyme, parsley, and potatoes and cook an additional 30 seconds, stirring once or twice.
  • Quickly whisk in flour and cook another 30 seconds, stirring continuously. Pour in the half-and-half, chicken broth, cream, and bay leaf and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to simmer. Stir in chicken and veggies and continue to simmer for 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours (check often to ensure liquid does not cook off). 
  • Remove and discard bay leaf. Season to taste with salt and pepper (I like 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper). Serve warm with buttermilk biscuits.
