Serves: 4-6
  • 3 Tbs grass fed butter or ghee
  • 1.5 pounds leeks
  • 1.5 pounds potatoes (I used a blend of red purple and yellow baby potatoes)
  • 24 oz (3 cups) chicken bone broth
  • 1 whole rotisserie chicken, meat removed from carcass and shredded
  • 1 can coconut milk (or ½ cup cream plus 1 cup whole milk)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Melt butter in a large soup pot over medium heat.
  2. Add leeks and a pinch of salt and sauté until translucent.
  3. Add potatoes, chicken broth, and additional pinch of salt. Bring liquid to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook until potatoes are fork tender, about 8 minutes.
  4. When potatoes are cooked, add shredded chicken and coconut milk (or whole milk and cream) and cook additional 5 minutes until heated through.
  5. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.
