Use Some Leftovers For A Stew
The other evening, I used my crockpot for dinner. A whole chicken in the crockpot with a bottle of BBQ sauce produced an amazing meal. We had lots of chicken left over to make a stew.
To begin the stew, I cut the chicken into bite size pieces. I added four large red potatoes, a medium sized onion, three large carrots, and a cup of chopped celery for fresh vegetables. In addition, I added a can of corn and a can of peas. For the sauce, I used a small can of tomato soup, a large can of small sliced tomatos and a package of beef stew seasoning. Pepper was added last.
After mixing the vegetables and chicken, I added three small tomato cans of water. The vegetables also produce moisture as they cook.

A Slow Cook
At first, I put the stew on high. Leaving it on high for about an hour, I then turned it down to Low for the rest of the day! The house smelled so good and we celebrated the cooler weather with a healthy warm meal. My husband loved the recipe. With meat and vegetables in one healthy and nutritious dish, we added a slice of bread and butter as a side. Enjoy!
The weather is changing and I am hungry for some chicken stew! The problem is that I have no chicken to make it with. Searching my pantry, I find two small cans of Starkist chicken breast meat. I crumpled the chunky pieces of chicken into my vegetables and slow cooked my stew. IT WAS DELICIOUS!
This is a great short cut to the above recipe! Many busy Moms will find that this shortcut will save the day. Add an additional can for a large family!
Like It Spicy?
Add Pace Picante sauce for extra spicy flavor and a bit of heat. Pace Picante sauce can be purchased with varying degrees of hot. Sprinkle jalapenos on top and serve with some of your favorite cheese for added flavor.
