A chilly night and not much time for making dinner? Check out this Easy Savory Chicken Stew. It’s delicious and easy to make, plus it doesn’t require you to spend hours in the kitchen. Serve it with some dinner rolls or maybe a quick salad. Serving it alone is just fine, too, although I’m hard pressed to not add buttered crackers or some Garlic French Bread Swirls. Your kitchen will smell wonderful and everyone will be asking, “What smells so good?”
Using leftover chicken or turkey in this stew.
Start with your soup pan or Dutch oven. Cook the onion and celery until tender, then you add your cooked shredded chicken. Buy a cooked chicken for this step, or use leftovers. Also, this can easily become a Turkey Stew the day after Thanksgiving, just swap out the chicken for left-over turkey.
Blend the cornstarch with the water and make sure there are no lumps, then add to your stew.
Everything is in there now; all you have to do is bring it to a boil then let it simmer for 15-30 minutes.
Don’t be alarmed if your mouth starts to water at this point…it’s perfectly natural.
Reheating Easy Savory Chicken Stew
When reheating your stew, you may want to add some more water or broth.
Sometimes soups and stews thicken up over night.
My preferred reheating method is to get another pan dirty by heating up the Easy Savory Chicken Stew on the stove. Heat it on low; slow and steady just until it starts to bubble again.
