Hearty Chicken Stew

This is one of my favorite recipes. I don’t care what time of year it is hot or cold bring on my hearty chicken stew. This was a favorite of mine when I was a kid too. We would have it so often that finally my parents said NO MORE they were sick of it but I sure wasn’t!

I make this as often as possible. Unlike the recipe I normally just eye ball the veggies and the broth. I cut up enough veggies to fill up my pot. Normally I double the potatoes and triple the carrots and just add extra broth! I don’t even measure anymore because I have made it so often.

Originally this recipe was on a Tyson Chicken recipe card in the grocery store butcher area when I was a kid. Thanks Tyson for making me one happy kid!
