Dump All into A Pot

Yes, that is what I called it.

Dump all your ingredients into the pot and simmer them for 20-30minutes.

This is the best and easiest way to cook a quick chicken stew in a jiffy for 4 person family.

You don't need any side dishes because it is a combination of meat and vegetables plus tubers, packed with vitamins, minerals and fibers.


A simple pot roast of chicken is a family treat when you want to get all the goodness in the juicy chicken meat, absorb Vitamin A from soft boiled carrots, carbohydrates from the chunks of potatoes and Vitamin C from the French beans vegetable.

This quick and easy Chicken Pot Roast was taught by my mom. All you have to do is put all the ingredients into the pot and fill in sufficient water to cover up the ingredients. Simmer for at least 20min to 30min until the chicken meat and vegetables turn soft.

Chicken Pot Roast uses skinless chicken ribs and chicken keels with very little fats, a healthy dish for the whole family that goes well with plain white rice.

This is the best pot I ever had!

Stir fried onions, chicken meat do not stick onto the base of this ceramic pot.
Furthermore, it cooks pretty fast, less than 20 minutes and the food slide off easily into a shallow bowl.

Washing is a breeze, no scrubbing, just a simple wash with sponge will do

Tips of the Day:Buy Organic Chicken

Why Buy Organic Chicken ?

  • Chicken meat may not be relatively cheap but it has been our daily food consumption for decades.
  • However, chicken farming had now focused on gaining more profits and growing in demand for enormous chicken meat that they resorted to use antibiotics, growth hormones, high-energy artificial feeds on the chickens.
  • These fragile chickens will gain weight, become plump at a short period of time which are highly abnormal that even lean meats have more fats than usual.
  • Therefore, it is far wiser to spend more money on organic chicken meat which contains much less fats in the meat itself.
  • It is safer to consume because it does not have injected chemicals, hormones and antibiotics that may harm our body system in long term run.
  • Remember to remove chicken skin as most of the fat is embedded in it.
  • When you buy organic chicken meat, you will consume nutrition such as protein, iron and zinc which has twice as much nutrients as red meat.

Benefits of eating Carrots

  • We all know that carrots are high in Vitamin A and beta-carotene which are beneficial to our eyes.
  • These nutrients help us to see better in the dark and improve our eyesight.
  • Many scientific studies show that high consumption of carrots helps to reduce the chances of contracting cancer diseases and provide healthier, smooth looking skin too.

Tips Of The Day:

How to choose good carrots

  • In order to choose good carrots, look for those with bright orange in color and firm to hold.
  • Big carrot does not indicate that it is full of juice.
  • Choose medium range carrots with root top that do not have any grown shoots.
  • Avoid pale orange carrots which indicate less beta-carotene and contain less carrot juice because they are old.

Surprising FACTS !

Potatoes are NOT FATTENING

In most Western countries such as US and UK, almost 50% of the population consume potatoes as part of their daily meal because potatoes provide Vitamin B, Vitamin C, minerals and carbohydrate.

A lot of weight watchers misunderstood that potatoes are fattening food . This depends on how you cook them.

If you only eat potatoes as French Fries or mix boiled potatoes with cream, butter or mayonnaise, these are additional fattening ingredients which lead to unhealthy and oily food. Potatoes absorb more oil if pan fried compare to boiled method.

Remember that potatoes belong to the root vegetable family that are healthy, nutritious and delicious if you boiled, baked or roasted them with a little olive oil instead.

      Most people always think "beef pot roast," but I actually tried some chicken pot roast last week. It is good for a change, and by using chicken instead of beef, it makes you want to also use some different vegetables, as well - as opposed to the common combination found in traditional beef pot roasts, and so on...

      @ insane mundane

      yeah.. most recipes are either beef, lamb but seldom chicken.. vegetable combination depends on the taste that blends well with chicken. i don't suppose u would include bitter gourd into chicken pot roast, do you?

    • Insane Mundane profile image

      Insane Mundane 5 years ago from Earth

      Bitter gourd? No, I do not, but do you think squash, zucchini, cucumber and other melons are bitter?

      I'd add some celery and bell peppers to your onions, carrots, green beans and potatoes, though... :)

      celery and bell peppers are delicious. Cucumber is acceptable but the others u mentioned don't fit the bill, though...

      Insane Mundane 5 years ago from Earth

      No, no... I was asking a separate question.

      I said I would only add celery and bell peppers to your recipe, but I was wondering why you think gourds are bitter. Maybe we prepare them differently?

      Well, I have tried bitter gourd. They are really bitter even if I wash them and rub with salt to reduce the bitter taste. Always boil soup with bitter gourd, not stir fry.

      Oh, well, if you take squash and/or zucchini or eggplant (gourds), for example, and slice it up into 1/4th inch slices, batter it with cornmeal, seasoned salt, pepper and a hint of sugar, fry in hot oil until it starts to brown on each side, it is really delicious; maybe you should try it!

      You mean put the ingredients together, add water to cover them and leave them like that for 20 - 30 minutes? No boiling needed at this stage? Well, I would also be grateful if you could tell me whether dark soy sauce and light soy sauce could be replaced with something else? Thanks. :)

      After you have fried the onion, garlic and ginger, add in the meat and vege. Then add in plain water , cover it and let it simmer for 2-30 min. Don't let it boil at high fire, will overflow. Medium or low fire better. You could replace the sauce with oyster sauce or sweet black sauce. Thanks for reading.

      I have never cooked chicken pot roast style. This is an easy way to cook delicious meals, and I do believe I will try it this way. Although, I do use a wok often times for cooking chicken dishes. Creating and eating healthy tasty home cooking meals is where its at for me. I like the way you put this hub all together with some educational facts about the ingredients, too.
