Slow Cooker Chicken Stew with Vegetables
|Slow Cooker Chicken Stew with Vegetables|
This Slow Cooked Chicken Stew is the perfect food to warm you up this fall. Bonus, it is cooked in a slow cooker all day, and is ready right when you need it on a busy work day.
Soup is my absolute favorite way to warm on winter or winter nights. We don't get many of them here in Southern California, but when we do, soup is my goal. There is nothing more than a big bowl of steaming hot soup, with tender vegetables and meat in a savory broth.
Chicken Stew is basically a recipe for my favorite chicken soup with pasta exchanged with potatoes and a little grits of corn flour to thicken it, making it super rich and warm. This soup recipe has lots of vegetables, and you can change it too, based on your personal taste or what's in your fridge.
