Need a hearty dinner that's chock-full of vegetables, low in salt and high in protein and is the perfect recipe that pretty much cooks itself? My Slow Cooked Chicken Stew Vegetable Medley is the answer.
Tender shredded chicken has been slow cooked in this one pot dish that is paired with a medley of vegetables.
For this recipe 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.
This recipe is similar to my Chicken Stew recipe but it features potatoes instead of beans. It's an easy recipe to make any day of the week. Grab a loaf of french bread to serve with it and enjoy!
