Chicken stew
Contributed by: Deborah Hayes blog 1/23/2005Added: Feb 13, 2008 at 04:44 AM

  • One bunch of celery
  • grilled chicken (previously cooked with sea salt, garlic powder and turmeric)
  • One large can of Swanson Natural Goodness Chicken Broth [check for avoids]
  • one large red onion (diced)
  • Leftover fresh parsley (about 1/3 of a bunch)
  • Sea salt
  • Minced garlic
  • baby carrots
  • Olive oil
  • ground coriander seed
  • curry powder
  • Arrowroot powder (thickener)
  • White rice
  • 2 small bay leaves
How to make it:
  1. Saute the red onion in olive oil.
    I just love the sweetness of the red onion.
  2. Add salt and garlic, warmed it up for a minute, and then turned off the heat.
  3. Chop celery and parsley.
  4. Add them to the crock-pot.
    I suspect I should have salted the celery, but didn't.
  5. Cut grilled chicken into bite size pieces.
  6. Add it to the crock-pot.
  7. Place the onion and garlic mixture on top
  8. Pour in the chicken broth.
  9. Add the bay leaves.
  10. Set the crock-pot on low, and walk away
    Practical Tip:

    Offer your children a taste of your stew BEFORE YOU SPICE IT UP. When you do spice it, place a ladle full in a bowl first and add a small amount of beneficial spice. My two year old liked the ground coriander seed, but did not like the curry. Regarding rice: in the past I have cooked rice in the crock pot (white rice) and it has taken about two hours. But in my opinion, it just tastes better on the stove. What's fifteen minutes anyway at the end of the day? :)
