Hearty Chicken Stew

hearty chicken stew recipe from Cooking Chat.

Leftover roast chicken serves as the basis for a hearty chicken stew. Vary the vegetables added based on what you have on hand.




  1. Heat the olive oil on medium in large pot. Add the onion, sauté until it begins to soften, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the carrots and garlic, sauté another 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the potatoes, heat for a few minutes, then add the stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a steady simmer on medium heat. Let it simmer until the potatoes start to soften a bit, about 15 minutes.
  4. Add the chicken, green beans, and kidney beans simmer gently for another 20 minutes or so.
  5. Stir in the greens, cook until they have wilted, 5 to 10 minutes. Length of time will depend on the kind of green you use; kale will take longer to wilt than chard. Add salt & pepper to taste.
  6. Ladle the stew into bowls to serve. Enjoy!
