What’s Cookin? Tuesdays Are Stews Days 8/21: Farmhouse Chicken Stew

Why Stews Days on Tuesdays? No reason, other than because it rhymes. Every Tuesday, look for a new stew recipe. Same place, same time.

What is it about a hearty stew that makes you feel better, especially on a cold day? For me, it’s a comfort food memory from when I was little. What about for you?

Oh, and enjoy!


  • 2-3 Chicken Breasts (Frozen or thawed)
  • 4 red potatoes, quartered
  • 2 celery ribs, sliced
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup (or more) frozen sweet peas
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp dried parsley
  • tsp dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
