Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced
  • 1 1/2 lbs chicken thighs
  • 4-6 medium potatoes, about 1 lb
  • 32 oz chicken broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 4 Tbsp flour
  • 1/2 pack bacon, 8 oz
  • 2 cups packed spinach
  • 1 – 1 1/2 Tbsp salt, to taste
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Chop the onion into small pieces. Slice carrots thin. If some slices are large just cut in half.
  • In a Dutch oven or pot with a thick bottom add oil, onion and carrots. Cook 5-7 minute on med/high heat or until carrots have become tender.
  • Meanwhile, remove any excess fat from chicken tights and cut into small pieces. Add chicken to pot. Cook another 5-7 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
  • Slice potatoes in half then cut into thin slices. (I used red potatoes and didn’t peel them.)
  • Add potatoes to the pot. Mix well.
  • Add chicken broth and water. Salt and pepper, to taste. Cook about 20 minutes or until potatoes are cooked.
  • Slice the bacon into thin slices and saute in pan until completely cooked. Place onto a paper towel to remove any excess grease. Once cooled, chop bacon into small pieces.
  • Chop spinach.
  • Mix heavy whipping cream and flour vigorously so there are no lumps.
  • Once potatoes are done cooking add bacon, heavy whipping cream, and spinach to the pot. Mix. Turn heat down to low and let simmer about 5 minutes. (Taste to see if additional salt and pepper is needed.)
  • So simple and so delish.
