How to make Chicken Stew
Step 1: To the bottom of a large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the diced chicken thighs and cook until mostly cooked through, stirring often.
Step 2: Toss in the onions and cook until translucent.
Step 3: Next, add the mushrooms. Stir and cook for a couple of minutes more.
Step 4: Add the potatoes to the pot along with the carrots, salt, pepper, bay leaves, and water. Stir, making sure the ingredients are covered in water. Continue to cook over medium-low heat for additional 30 minutes.
Step 5: To make the slurry, whisk 2 tbsp water with 2 tbsp flour. Stir this into the stew. If desired, add the parsley and turmeric. The stew is ready to serve once it achieved your preferred thickness. Enjoy!
For this recipe, dark meat is best to use. It gives the stew amazing texture and flavor.
I would not recommend skipping the mushrooms unless you are not a fan. Mushrooms add tons of flavor and aroma to the stew.
Turmeric is optional, but it gives the chicken stew better color and also added health benefits.
Slice the veggies into large pieces to prevent them from getting overly tender as the stew simmers.
