Ingredients

  • 2 TBSP ghee or butter
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 large red potatoes diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup non-gmo cornstarch or arrowroot powder (for paleo/keto)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 8 oz. block cream cheese
  • 1 12 oz. pkg frozen peas & carrots
  • 2 cups cooked chicken chopped
  • 3 cups mature cheddar cheese grated
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 TBSP fresh parsley chopped (optional)

Instructions

  1. Saute onions and potatoes in ghee or butter in a large skillet. Allow to cook for 8-10 minutes on medium heat with the lid on, stirring occasionally. Add garlic during last minute of cooking time.

  2. Add cornstarch or arrowroot and chicken broth to a mason jar. Shake vigorously to combine. 

  3. Add broth/starch mixture and cream cheese to skillet potatoes. Cook and stir until cream cheese is melted and sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.

  4. Fold in frozen peas/carrots and cooked chicken. Season to taste with salt & pepper. 

  5. Transfer to 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle with cheddar and bake at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, until cheese is golden brown and bubbly. If cheese is taking too long to brown, broil for 3-5 minutes. Before serving, sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley if desired.
