Homemade Chicken Stew With Biscuits
Homemade Chicken Stew Recipe
If you want your chicken stew to be really good and tasty you want to start with a whole fryer or hen from your local supermarket. Once you have your whole chicken from the supermarket you will want to remove it from its package and wash it off well under cold running water. Once you have it washed well place it and if it came with a small package of giblets add that to into a large stock pot and cover with water. To that stock pot add the below.
1. 1 Large Purple Sweet Onion Chopped Well.
2. 1 Tablespoon Ground Sage.
3. 1 Teaspoon Salt.
4. 1 Teaspoon Sweet Paprika.
5. 1 Cup Real Butter.
6. 1 Tablespoon Dry Parsley Flakes.
7. 1 Teaspoon Ground Cayenne Pepper.
Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium and cook until your chicken is done and tender. Once the chicken is done remove it carefully from the pot and allow it to cool. Meantime turn your stock pot off and allow it to cool. Once it is almost cool add a couple of cups of crushed ice to your pot and scoop off the ice and what ever fat is sticking to it and discard.
Once your chicken is cool you will want to remove the skin and then take all the meat off the chicken bones and return the meat to the stock pot. Discard the skin and bones.
Now to your stock pot you will want to add the below.
1. 1 Cup English Peas.
2. 1 Cup Fine Diced Carrots.
3. 1 Cup Fine Diced Celery.
4. 4 Cans Cream Of Chicken Soup.
5. 1 Tablespoon Fresh Chopped Parsley.
6. 6 Large Eggs Hard Boiled And Grated Up Fine.
Bring your stock pot back to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Now you will want to spray one large or two small casserole dishes with vegetable cooking spray and ladle each casserole dish almost full of your chicken stew.
Now you can purchase two packages of frozen biscuits from your local supermarket and you will want to place your frozen biscuits on top of your chicken stew and slightly push each down into the chicken stew. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and when hot place each casserole dish of chicken stew with biscuits into the oven and bake until the biscuits are done and golden brown. If necessary you can brown them under the broiler of your oven.
Once your biscuits are done serve a serving of the chicken stew with a biscuit or two over hot buttered rice and you have one of the most delicious chicken dishes that you will ever eat. This is one of my all time favorite chicken dishes and please do the complete recipe. Don't skimp or add anything low fat to the recipe. The whole fryer or hen is essential to this recipe if you want the most delicious flavor. To me it is also important to use only Campbell Cream Of Chicken Soup. It just adds the very best flavor to this soup. The grated hard boiled eggs are another essential part of this wonderful chicken stew with biscuits recipe.
