Need a healthy dinner that pretty much cooks itself? 

This homemade stew is slow cooking at its best.

It’s as easy as tossing everything into a crockpot or one big pot on the stove.

There is nothing I like more than coming home to slow cooker recipe that I can serve with a garden salad and a crusty loaf of bread on a cold day.

This delicious recipe is one of my favorite busy weeknight meals that makes great leftovers.

I often enjoy this the next day as a healthy lunch.

For this slow cooker soup, I took a peek into the vegetable bin and grabbed what I had.

I tossed in button mushrooms, a red bell pepper, sweet carrots and a few potatoes.

I used a low salt chicken broth and a can of fire roasted tomatoes and slow simmered the chicken breasts until they were fork tender and easy to shred off the bone.

It’s an easy crockpot recipe to make any day of the week when you can set it and forget it.

Grab a loaf of French bread to serve with this delicious meal and enjoy!

Can I use cooked or rotisserie chicken?

Absolutely! Save time and hassle by adding the rotisserie chicken to the end of the cooking process.

Simply cook the rest of the soup ingredients ahead of time and when ready to serve, just add in as much shredded chicken as you want.

Is it safe to use raw chicken in chicken vegetable stew

Yes! As long as you allow the raw chicken to cook until it reaches a cooking temperature of 165 degrees F on a cooking thermometer.

One great way to tell it’s finished cooking is if it pulls off the bone easily with two forks.

What is the best Crockpot or Pot for this recipe

I have several crockpots and really any one will work, but I like this 8-quart slow cooker because it has digital programmable settings as well as a warm function.

It’s a great deal from Crock-Pot at $75.

For a stove top stew pot, I always go to my favorite heavy cast iron dutch oven.

This 6-quart pot from Amazon is a steal at $47.
