Chicken Stew Recipe

Chicken Stew is warm, hearty, and is the perfect dish to combat the winter or fall! Made with tender chicken thighs in a savory vegetable-laden broth! Chicken Stew smells amazing as it cooks! It has a creamy base which I love to sip and mop with bread. And the vegetables add more flavors and pop of colors to it, making it more appetizing. My favorite aspect of this dish is the chicken itself. This recipe makes use of the thigh part which becomes fall-apart tender as it cooks. The natural fat in it adds juiciness and flavor to the meat. You see, there is not a lot that is needed for this dish. Everything is simple and you can make it just about any time. You will also use just one pot for this! The flavors and texture of this dish will make anyone think that it has been left simmering for hours but, you can finish cooking within an hour!

How do you store chicken stew?

  • Refrigerate: Put it in the fridge, placed in an airtight container, for up to 3 or 4 days.
  • Freeze: Extend its shelf life by freezing it in a freezer bag. Consume within 4 to 6 months. To reheat, thaw first in the fridge then, reheat on the stovetop.

Recipe tips:

  • To make sure that you mix the slurry well, place the cornstarch and water in a mason jar and shake well.
  • If you intend to freeze this, you might as well use a flour and water mixture as the thickening agent, not cornstarch. The outcome has a better texture.
  • You can add sweet potatoes in it which can also act as a thickener.
