Chicken and Sweet Potato Chowder, Paleo Friendly

Last weekend was football weekend. Three games. And although I don’t know much about the game, you’d have to be a total goof not to recognize Brady’s brilliance. That man throws a ball like I thread a needle. Serious talent.

In our house, football on the telly means football food in the kitchen—gooey, cheesy, hot and spicy, football food—nachos, Buffalo wings, roasted crudités drenched in blue cheese, the works. But this weekend, I went all out. I made chicken chowder. For all you New Englanders out there, that’s Chowda, Baby! I was chopping and sautéing and stirring for a good hour. I was pumped. My husband was not so impressed. “WTH?” might have been his exact words. I’m not sure. I was too busy making yom-yom noises in my bowl. And after a few more minutes, so was he. Flavored with ham, bacon and leeks, thickened with sweet potatoes, sprinkled with paleo croutons, sweet potato fries on this side, this chowda is pure deliciousness.


  1. This is called Chicken and Sweet Potato Chowder, but the only chicken I see is the broth. Am I missing something?

  2. Ahhhhh!! Thank you! I forgot to add the chicken!!

    I'll revise today!

  3. I should say, if you didn't add the chicken, it would still be delicious. But that afternoon, I was looking to make a hearty soup, a mixture of flavors and textures, and wouldn't have left it out. Then again, if time was an issue, you could leave it out, or simply use a rotisserie chicken.
    Thanks, again, Jen, for catching that!!

  4. Good recipe but as said above the chicken seems missing from the chowder. Otherwise I have tried it and it still tastes delicious with bread.
