INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Melt butter in 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat in a large Dutch oven/soup pot. Increase heat to medium high and add onions, carrots and celery and sauté for 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds. Sprinkle in flour and cook, while stirring, an additional 2 minutes.
  2. Turn heat to low and stir in chicken, ham and potatoes. Add chicken broth. Whisk cornstarch with half and half (you can whisk with as little as 1/2 cup milk, just enough so it dissolves) and add to pot. Stir in Dijon, bay leaves and all seasonings.
  3. Increase heat to high, cover pot and bring to a boil. Remove lid and reduce heat to a gentle simmer until potatoes are fork tender, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
