This chicken stew is made with juicy chicken meat, tasty mushrooms, potatoes, carrots and herbs, giving it a full and super tasty flavour. With a cooking time of less than an hour, it can also be a great option for a weekday dinner party.
This stew is the ultimate comfort food. Thick and hot, it will warm you up in cold weather and fill you up when you’re looking for a hearty meal at the end of the day. I love this stew for dinner because it is easy to prepare and makes everyone at my table smile.
