Chicken Stew

Filed under: Poultry, Soup and Stew — ruralmomof3 @ 6:26 pm

A cool fall evening and a boy with a cold. . . . perfect night for chicken related soup type stuff!!

Here’s what I did:

2 Tbl olive oil or butter

1/2 rutabaga, peeled and julienned

1 handful baby carrots, sliced (or 1-2 whole carrots)

2 stalks celery, sliced

1/8 head cabbage, shredded

1 small onion sliced thin

1-2 c fully cooked chicken

3 c chicken broth

salt n pepper to taste

In stock pot, place oil and then vegetables in order and cook on medium (I put in the oil, turned burner onto low, and prepped the veggies as I placed them in). Stir occasionally, cook until they have begun to sweat well and are that bright color shown here:Once the veggies get all bright and yummy looking, add your chicken and broth, and seasoning.  Bring to boil, cover, reduce heat to med/low and cook 10 min or so until the veggies are almost soft.  I served mine with grilled cheese on wheat!
