Slow Cooker Chicken and Vegetable Stew

October 11, 2020

Slow cooker chicken and vegetable stew is perfect for those days where you home to smell the aroma of delicious food. Which is pretty much every day!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Vegetable Stew

This is one of those recipes that your cat could make because it is so easy. It is close (but not exactly) to one of those unfortunately named “dump” recipes.

You know the ones that I am referring to - dump one can cream of mushroom soup, one chicken breast, one package noodles….. No slicing or dicing needed!

There are a ton of “dump” cookbooks but I can’t find many recipes that I like. They tend to rely on processed foods instead of fresh foods and aren’t the healthiest.

There is some slicing and chopping with this chicken and vegetable stew recipe but it is minimal. I buy my mushrooms pre-sliced (but you still have to wash them) and then do some work with the pepper, carrot, onion, and garlic. This goes fast!

Chicken does well in the slow cooker see my easy slow cooker chicken tacos and low carb chicken soup. It stays moist and becomes quite tender after hours of cooking.

This slow cooker chicken and vegetable stew could also be called vegetable and chicken stew because it is predominantly vegetables (and a fruit -tomato). I think this type of cooking - with meat taking a second place to vegetables - is the way of the future. It is better for you and the environment at the same time. Win-win!

I did not use chicken breasts here because I think it wouldn’t be flavorful enough - the stew might become to bland. I do add some chili pepper and salt at the end because I like my food spicy.

Serve this with a salad and some crunchy bread or over pasta.

Do you make a slow cooker chicken and vegetable stew? What do you put in it?
