You guys.

I love hearty, creamy, winter comfort food. I can’t get enough.

I love it so much that I probably eat more stew and soup in the summer than your average person, especially considering our summers are a little on the short side here (you’d think I’d want to take advantage of our shorter grilling season!).

I was struggling with trying to decide what to make for you this month with these gorgeous Chilean Splash Little Potatoes. I had thought about maybe a traditional beef stew or pot roast, and while those would have both been super delicious, this creamy garlic Parmesan chicken version takes the cake.

It’s loaded with chicken, veggies (I used carrots, celery, onion, and obviously potatoes, but feel free to add in your favorites! Broccoli or mushrooms would be great too), and smothered in the creamiest garlic Parmesan sauce.

I went a little heavy on the liquid in this stew — stoup, if you will — because it is one of the best parts. I love soaking up all that extra broth with a chunk of crusty bread! I’m pretty sure it’s good for my soul on these cold, miserable winter days 😉 If you want more stew and less stoup, just reduce the broth by 1/2-1 cup.

Cuisine American
Course Main Course, Soup
Servings 6 servings
Calories 255cal


  • 1 lb Little Potatoes I used Chilean Splash, halved or quartered if large
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1″ pieces
  • 1 stalk celery chopped
  • 1/2 medium onion finely chopped
  • 3-4 large carrots thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2/3 cup cream or milk
  • 4 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  • Add potatoes, chicken, celery, onion, carrots, garlic, salt, parsley, thyme, pepper, and broth to a 4-6 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours or until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender (this could take up to 6 hours depending on the temperature of your slow cooker — cutting them smaller will speed up cooking time).
  • Set slow cooker to high. Stir together cream and corn starch and stir into slow cooker, along with Parmesan cheese. Cover and cook another 30 minutes or until thickened.
  • Serve immediately with crusty bread for dipping (the best way!).


*I have cooked this stew on the stove top and it works just as well! If you’re in a hurry, simmer everything except cream, corn starch and Parmesan in a large pot until potatoes are tender. Combine cream and corn starch and stir into the pot with the Parmesan, continue cooking until thickened.

    Oh, and for the contest! My FAVORITE potato dish of all time is potatoes sliced thin, mixed with sliced onions. Add some sage, olive oil, garlic, then throw it all in a sauce pan for maybe 20-30 minutes, mixing once or twice throughout. We call them ‘Clayton Potatoes’ in my home after my SO, who makes them GREAT! Lol

  2. Ellie H says

    OMGosh this looks SO good! It’s the perfect time of year for some of this yummy stew, too. Ohhh, I bet it makes fantastic leftovers.

  3. Sarah says

    We used to make what we called gourmet spuds – baked potatoes with a ground beef stroganoff sauce, grated cheese and sour cream on top. Very yummy!

  4. Brittany says

    Hello! One of our favorite potatoe recipes is any type of scalloped potatoes! I also like them as they tend to reheat and not lose too much consistency etc. That’s my biggest problem with most soups…the broth/liquid is basically nonexistent day 2, but your recipe looks promising!

  5. Shannon says

    Looks great! Will try this over the weekend! My favourite potato dish is garlic mashed rebaked in the oven with paprika and cheese melted ontop !

  6. Lisa S. says

    My son loves when I make kielbasa with little potatoes. You just boil them together and mash the potatoes on your plate with butter, salt, & pepper. Delicious and super easy for a weeknight meal!

  7. Marsha says

    Love scalloped potatoes with ham , well potatoes rock anyway they are cooked yummy!!! My fave potatoes are Yukon gold 🙂

  8. Norma Miranda says

    Love potatoes, its a weekly staple in my home. Baked mashed boiled fried even eating a few sliced raw pieces.

  9. Natalie says

    Potatoes are my favourite food so there really isn’t a way I don’t like them. I could eat them everyday in any form (just for the record, I don’t), but my absolute favourite potato dish has to be garlic bread pot pie. It’s like a regular pot pie loaded with potatoes, but instead of pie crust it’s topped with chunks of garlicky bread. So good and so comforting for winter days.

  10. Elizabeth says

    Crash hot potatoes here! Boil them, drizzle olive oil on a pan then put boiled potatoes on pan and smash! Add more olive oil and salt and bake at 425 for like 30 mins- so crispy and delish!

  11. Stephanie M says

    Totally making this for supper this week!! My babe loves chicken but I always seem to overcook it..this seems like a good way to have tender chicken & veggies!! I LOVE potatoes but one of my faves is on the BBQ with other veggies, seasoned and lots of the good stuff…BUTTER!!! Mmm.

  12. Jonnalyn Gates says

    My favorite Potato dish is my sister’s Chicken Loaded Potato Soup. Its delicious and I beg her to make it at least once a month.

  13. Samantha says

    I love to make garlic mashed potatoes with potatoes from the little potatoe company. Having the skin in the mashed is so delicious

  14. Hana Matkin says

    This looks delicious but I can’t have dairy ( cows milk) unfortunately due to a sensitivity to casein. I am wondering how this would taste with coconut cream vs. heavy cream. Might have to try.
    I love mashed potatoes!
