One of my favourite fall/winter meals is Chicken stew! I will use leftover turkey or even just cut up the chicken breast into small pieces for this meal. It is fairly quick and so hearty!  As per How I like things here is THE recipe, my own, made up after many trials and errors to get it how I like it!

Jenn’s Chicky Stew:

  • Chicken, Leftover turkey or chopped up breast.
  • A celery stick or two
  • A good amount of mushroom (if you like them, I love them)
  • half a butternut squash
  • half a sweet potato
  • 3 med size potatos
  • onion

Sauce:

  • a cup ish of water mixed with OXO (chicken flavour)
  • 2Tbsp brown sugar (or a touch more if you like to taste the sweet a little more)
  • Basil. I do a good teaspoon worth.
  •  Cornstarch mixed with some water for thickening.

First I want you to peel all those squash and spuds, cube and get into seperate pot. The potato cooks slowest so get those in water first and then the butternut squash and then the sweet potato. Let them boil until done.

Once you have that done, move onto the chicken and other veg.

Put your chicken (if using raw boob) in the pan and fry it up. When close to done, add the onions, celery, and the basil.  When the celery and onion are close to done add the mushrooms.

When your veg is cooked, add 2Tbsp of brown sugar and a teaspoon of oil and let it cook for a few minutes, stirring often.

Add a bit of cornstarch to water. I usually do a 1/8 cup water to 2 Tbsp of cornstarch. (ish)

Thicken up that sauce and once it is thickened, gravy thick ish NOT pudding thick.  Add in the potato and squash.
