WHY YOU’LL LOVE THIS CHICKEN STEW RECIPE:
DELICIOUS! This Chicken Stew recipe is a warm, savory symphony of juicy chicken, tender veggies and layers of complex aromatic flavor swaddled in rich, herb infused broth. The stew is seasoned to perfection with hand-picked seasonings of oregano, parsley, basil, thyme, paprika and cumin that will fill your home with the savory aroma of anticipation.
THICK AND CREAMY. This Chicken Stew is lusciously thick from the combination of both a roux and cannellini beans. The beans become one with the broth as they simmer, breaking down and creamifying the soup. You can also customize the consistency of the stew by making it less thick or more creamy.
NO CREAM SOUP. To that end, this Chicken Stew recipe doesn’t use any mystery “cream of” canned soups but still emerges rich, creamy and flavorful.
PANTRY FRIENDLY INGREDIENTS. The ingredients for this Chicken Stew recipe are simple, inexpensive and you probably have almost all of them on hand. This recipe can also be made with any chicken you have on hand from chicken thighs to chicken breasts to rotisserie chicken.
EASY & EFFECTIVE SHORTCUTS. This homemade Chicken Stew recipe utilizes a few easy shortcuts to make it easy enough to make on a weeknight, without skimping on flavor. Chicken Stew from scratch starts by simmering a whole chicken. To minimize prep and cook time, this recipe utilizes quick-cooking, flavorful chicken thighs. It also uses store-bough chicken broth in place of homemade chicken broth spiked with chicken bouillon and seasonings to create complex layers of flavor.
PREP AHEAD. The most time-consuming part of this stew is trimming the chicken and chopping your carrots, celery, potatoes, onions and garlic. Fortunately, all this prep can be done ahead of time and it’s a great way to get your kids involved.
MAKE AHEAD. This Chicken Stew can be made in the morning or days in advance because it tastes even better the next day!
