This Hearty Chicken Stew is flavorful, comes together in no time, and includes tender chicken, potatoes, and veggies in an incredible cream sauce!
With colder weather here, nothing tastes better than a bowl of warm soup, right?! Well, this Hearty Chicken Stew is a bit thicker than soup, but warms you up and has incredible flavor!
A few nights ago, I was looking for a dinner that I could prep ahead of time. With after school activities, I knew I needed something that could be enjoyed quickly, but stick with us.
After browsing through my refrigerator and pantry, I found lots of fresh veggies, some extra potatoes, and a loaf of French Bread on hand.
Since I LOVE my Dutch Oven, I decided to go the soup/stew route!
After dicing the veggies, sauteing the chicken, and adding all the seasonings to the pot, this stew came together in no time and was PACKED with flavor!
I was able to make this ahead of time and simply warm back up come dinnertime! We even had enough leftover to enjoy for lunch the next day!
Whether you choose to enjoy this with some warm crusty bread, a side salad, or on its own…this will be one meal that the entire family will enjoy!
