Foodie Friday #7: Homestyle Chicken Stew

With Autumn now being upon us, the weather is going to start getting cooler, which means it's time for the hearty, stick to your bones kind of meals. This chicken stew recipe was given to me by my mom, and even though I've "veggie-fied" it, it's still super tasty and enough to fill even the hungriest of bellies. Enjoy!


3.5-4 lbs chicken cut into pieces
1 package of simulated vegetarian chik'n chopped
3 cups water
2 1/2 tsp vegetable or chicken bouillon
3/4 tsp sage
pinch of thyme
2 cups chopped carrots
3/4 cups celery diced
1 small onion diced
2 large potatoes diced
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups peas


Place chicken in a large saucepan with water, boullion, salt, sage and thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until chicken is cooked and tender - 5 mins for sim. chik'n, 1.5-2 hrs for real chicken. Add carrots, celery, onion and potatoes and simmer covered for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are just tender. Mix flour and milk separately until smooth and gradually add to saucepan, stirring to mix completely. Add peas and cook until thickened.
