Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • ½ pound baby carrots
  • 2 Celery Stalks, chopped
  • 1 small can green beans
  • 4 red potatoes, quartered (peeled or not)
  • ½ teaspoon salt, plus small amount for seasoning
  • 16 oz Chicken or Vegetable Broth
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper, plus small amount for seasoning
  • 3 tbsp Cornstarch
  • Parsley, if desired
Instructions
  1. In a large pot, heat the Olive Oil.
  2. Season the chicken with salt & pepper.
  3. Place the chopped chicken breast meat in the hot oil and cook through.
  4. Place the chopped onion, carrots, celery, green beans and potatoes in the pot with the cooked chicken.
  5. Cook until softened.
  6. Add the salt, pepper, and garlic powder to season the vegetables
  7. Add Chicken or Vegetable Broth
  8. Cook for 1 to 1½ hours on medium low heat.
  9. If stew is not thick enough for your preference, mix 1 tbsp of cornstarch at a time with a small amount of leftover broth until dissolved, and add it to the stew. I've added up to 3 tbsp of cornstarch if a batch is thinner than I'd like.
  10. If serving with biscuits, break the biscuits into small bite-sized pieces and put on top of the stew.
  11. May garnish with parsley, if desired.
  12. Enjoy!
