Megan is constantly asking me to make
Chicken Stew - Like Grandma Makes.
It's yummy AND quick to make. I don't have exact measurements, but here's how I do it:
1 package of chicken breasts - cut into bite sized pieces
1 small onion - diced
2 TBS flour
3-4 cups of chicken broth
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 pound of carrots (you can cut or use mini ones like I do)
3-4 small/med potatoes peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
Heat a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Add 1 TBS olive oil. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned, adding onion during the last 5 minutes(8-10 minutes). Remove chicken and onions to bowl. Add flour to make a roux. If you need a bit more oil, add it. Cook for 3-4-5 minutes until lightly golden. Add chicken broth, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and stir. Add chicken, potatoes and carrots. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. Add peas and let cook for another 5-10 minutes. Serve with fresh, hot bread.
Should serve 6, but our family of 5 never has leftovers.
