Quick Chicken Stew

Quick Chicken Stew

Posted 2018-04-14 by Red Solacefollow
It's coming to the end of the week and the cupboards are looking pretty bare. I managed to whip up this warming stew with what I had left in the kitchen. Feel free to add more ingredients such as butternut squash, mushrooms and celery for a real hearty supper.



Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour
Serves: 4

Ingredients
4 chicken legs
900ml vegetable stock
2 medium onions
4 cloves of garlic
2 large carrots
4 medium potatoes
1 tbsp mustard powder
2 tbsp tomato puree
3 tbsp plain flour
1 heaped tbsp thyme
3 tbsp olive oil
20g butter
A dash of Worcestershire sauce
Salt
Pepper

Method
  • Season the chicken legs with salt and pepper and fry in a large pan with 1 tbsp oil and butter until golden on both sides.



  • Fry the chopped onions in a large pot with the remaining oil until soft. Add a sprinkle of thyme.

  • Make the stock and pour onto the onions. Add the chicken pieces, bring to a boil then simmer.
  • Chop the carrots into batons, slice the garlic thinly and add both to the pot along with the thyme, tomato puree and mustard powder.



  • Cover and leave to simmer for 10 minutes. In the meantime peel and chop the potatoes ( I chopped my potatoes in half. If you have large ones, chop them into quarters).
  • Add the potatoes along with a dash of Worcestershire sauce.
  • Next spoon out approx 200ml of the stock from the pot into a small bowl. Gradually whisk in 3 tablespoons of flour.
  • Stir the mixture back into the pot gradually and leave to simmer and thicken for around 30-40 minutes.



  • Season to taste and serve with crusty bread.
