A cooking light recipe with chicken, potato, and greens. Sounds like comfort food to me!

Oh my, this was good. I subbed parsnip for the turnip, since that is our favorite root veggie, and it permeated the stew with such a wonderful flavor. I used fresh thyme, less salt, and made this in the crock pot with the chicken breasts uncut (I still sauteed the leeks and added the pureed part and greens toward the end of cooking). Fed 3 as a very yummy main course.
