Easy Chicken Stew

Chicken, salt, oil, onion, carrots, celery, garlic, Italian seasoning, pepper, butter, flour, chicken broth, potatoes


Heat the oil in a large pot over medium. Cook the onions, carrots, and celery for 2 minutes.

Next, add the garlic, Italian seasoning, ½ teaspoon of salt, and black pepper. Cook for 1 minute.

Add the butter stir until it melts.

Then, add the flour and cook, while stirring, for 2 minutes.

Now, add the chicken broth. Stir briskly and gently scrape any bits off the bottom of the pot.

Add the chicken to the pot. Cover and cook for about 20 minutes or until cooked through. Remove the chicken and set it on a cutting board to cool.

Add the potatoes to the stew. Keep the broth at a simmer.

In the meantime, shred (or dice) the chicken. Add it back to the pot as soon as you are finished.

Cover the pot and continue cooking until the potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes.

Taste and add salt if needed. Garnish with parsley and serve with lime, crackers, rice, or bread.
