Today, I want to share another comfort food recipe with you. This recipe takes me back to my childhood. I loved when my mother made this for our family especially on snowy days. My brother and I would go outside to play in the snow with friends for hours. When we came back in from the cold snow, my mom would have a nice hearty bowl of stew on the table. It really hit’s the spot, a true comfort food.
When my mother made this, she made it on top of the stove in a huge pot. She would have to get up a few times in the middle of the night to stir it occasionally. This stew was truly a labor of love and you could tell by how delicious it taste. My goal with this recipe was to make it as delicious as my mom’s but simplify the process.
Step 1: Ingredients
5 medium organic potatoes (cut into bite size pieces)
1/2 of an organic whole chicken or 4 skin on bone in chicken thigh or breast
(26 oz.) organic carton of crushed tomato
1 carton of organic low sodium chicken stock
4 C organic frozen mixed vegetables
4 stalks organic celery (sliced about 1/4″ thick) (optional)
1/2 of an organic yellow or white large onion (diced)
Seasonings: 1 tsp of black pepper, salt, oregano, basil, thyme, garlic & onion powder
1 TBS Organic Cane Sugar
Step 2: Method
Once you have cut your potatoes, onion and celery it’s time to add your ingredients to the crock pot.
Place your chicken, tomato puree, chicken stock, potatoes, celery onion, mixed veggies and seasoning mixture into crock pot. Stir to get everything mixed together. Set on high for 10 hours.
