Chicken & Sweet Corn Chowder
My new favorite recipe on rotation this year!! Seriously, so incredibly delicious and gut healthy, of course! I love a good chowder but unfortunately most are made with such heavy ingredients and fillers that you end up feeling totally bloated and sluggish. Not this one…First, I used coconut milk (the canned, full fat version) to give it the added creaminess. You don’t taste the coconut at all because I also added chicken bone broth to create the most dreamy broth. Side note—if you are looking for other ways to consume your broth, adding coconut milk in with chicken broth is a great idea to sip on throughout the day! Then, I added potatoes that were boiled and cooled so are super high in resistant starch, another important factor in gut health. For more information on resistant starch, check out my Oven Roasted Smashes Potato recipe!
I also added fresh, local Colorado sweet corn and fresh herbs for an extra comfort feel. Topped this with crispy sage which is super tasty and easy to make. Simply heat oil or ghee in a pan then add pieces of sage and fry a few min each side and top with sea salt. YUM! Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as me!
