Often my daughter and I frequent Market Street, a grocery store, for their soup bar. We like to visit it in between guard practice or after late practice. I noticed there was one soup she had to have every time we went. The Green Chile Chicken Stew with potatoes, peppers, and chunks of chicken. I knew I had to make some type of replica at home for comfort food.
When working to replicate this soup a friend of mine mentioned she cannot have corn because she is allergic. Often she finds all types of corn even corn syrup in the strangest items. It makes it hard for her to find something she can cook. With her in mind, I made this soup corn free.
With my son’s friend in mind I also wanted to make the soup gluten free. The challenge was creating a way for the soup to still be thick. Honestly, the longer this soup cooks and the potatoes break down the thicker it becomes. And for my husband that isn’t a fan of dairy in soups I kept this soup dairy free. This soup is also paleo friendly.
I am going to list two ways to make this recipe. One in the slow cooker and another in the pressure cooker. It can also be made on the stove. I prefer the electric pressure cooker as it takes less time. It also helps the chicken become so tender. You don’t lose any of the liquid either like you do on the stove top or in the slow cooker. Don’t forget to check the notes of the recipe for the slow cooker version of this recipe. Do you have a favorite soup you would like to replicate? I’d love to know 🙂
