Chicken and Apple Stew

   Posted by: anj68   in Dairy Free, Gluten Free, recipe

Chicken and Apple Stew:
One whole chicken, skin removed and deboned
2 lbs of carrot, cubed
2 lbs of red potatoes, cubed
1 Sweet potato, peeled and cubed
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 leek, cut up
1.5 lbs of apples (use a firmer apple like a Harrleson), cored and cubed
1 cup of apple cider (optional)
1 TB cinnamon
1 tsp of kosher salt
1 tsp of cumin
2 TB of cooking oil

Dice the boneless chicken into 1″ cubes and sauté in the oil on medium heat for about 3 minutes. The outside of the chicken should be browned. Add half of the apples, the leeks, and sprinkle the cinnamon and cumin. Stir occasionally for a minute and add enough water to cover the chicken. Stir again.

Add the carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, garlic, and hard cider to the pot. Add enough water to cover mixture and place lid on pot. Stir every 4 – 5 minutes until potatoes and carrots are tender. Remove from heat for five minutes and it is ready to serve.

I also made this dish for our party. Everyone enjoyed it and even asked for the recipe!
I was happy to recommend this site.
The recipe makes a lot of stew, be prepared to send some home with guests if they don’t eat it all first!
I used 3lbs of chicken breasts instead of a whole bird and a little extra cinnamon (my preference)
I also added the last half of the apples at the end, before letting it stand 5 mins.
The apple flavor was not overpowering… just the perfect amount.

I’m really glad you enjoyed both recipes. Of the two you mentioned, the pie is my favorite.
