Pull out your slow cooker for this hearty, healthy dinner recipe. You’ll love to warm up with a bowl of Crock Pot Chicken Stew on a cool evening!
Yesterday was the first day in as long as I can remember that I took a full-on sick day. I came down with a bad cold and was in bed from 8am until 2pm when I had to drag myself up to pick up the kids. I should probably reveal that my “desk” is actually sitting on my bed with my laptop, so I guess this wasn’t completely out of the ordinary. This time I was under the covers in my PJs though, so that qualifies as a sick day.
When lunchtime came around, I was happy that I had made this chicken stew in my slow cooker the night before. It is just as good leftover, and hot chicken stew is just right for nursing a sore throat. If you can eat bread, it would be extra good with some crusty sourdough for dipping.
I hope you don’t mind that I used onion soup mix as a seasoning shortcut in this recipe. I try to stick to less processed ingredients, but I had a packet of soup mix leftover from those Cheeseburger Boats, and I thought it would be a good flavor for this stew. If you don’t want to use that ingredient, you could add a diced onion and a few other spices to your liking.
Speaking of customizing this recipe, you can add whatever vegetables you like! I signed up for another local produce delivery service, so I had fresh kale, sweet potatoes, and carrots on hand. If you want to use white potatoes and green beans or whatever other vegetable substitutions or additions you’d like, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the result. I always think you should make my recipes to suit your tastes, especially when it comes to picking your favorite vegetable additions. I do hope you make and enjoy this easy soup recipe!
