Chicken Stew Recipe

After receiving a recipe for chicken stew from a friend (Hi Tiffany!) that called for a homemade roux - my worst enemy - I decided to create my own recipe. This one calls for a lot of ready made items that can help you make this slow cooked oldie a fast and easy goodie.


1 rotissere chicken - meat pulled off bone
2 packets of Louisiana Cajun brown gravy mix
1 32 oz carton chicken broth
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 soup cans full of water
1 8oz can diced stewed tomatoes (or something of the like, even rotel will do)
1 bag frozen seasoning mix (with the onions, bell pepper, celery)
salt & garlic powder
1 palm full of dried parsley
1 tbsp canola or vegetable oil

Heat oil in your dutch oven or large pot. Saute frozen seasoning mix until onions get brown on edges. Toss in the chicken and can of tomatoes, mix well. Next add the chicken broth and 2 packets of cajun gravy mix and bring to an easy boil.

In a separate bowl, mix the two cans of soup and two cans of water. Once the mixture in the pot starts to thicken up, add the soup mixture and stir all ingredients in pot well. At this point take a spoon to taste whether or not you would like to add salt. Add the dried parsley and a light layer of garlic powder to the stew and stir well.

Turn the pot on low and let simmer. In the meantime, get yourself a pot of rice going and by the time its done, your chicken stew will be too!

Way too easy, right? It really is... and its delicious! Enjoy. :)

This sounds quite yummy! I have been looking for good chicken recipes. My dad has had to take all red meats and fred foods out of his diet and I cook for my mom and him on weekdays and it's so hard to find a good recipe and not just keep cooking the same ol' stuff all of the time!
