This Creamy Chicken Stew is the ultimate comfort food. Made with tender chicken and fresh vegetables all baked in a delicious creamy sauce.
This Creamy Chicken Stew is one of those recipes that I have had in my recipe box for years and have made countless times. I don’t even remember where the recipe came from…but it’s a family favourite for sure!
There’s just something so comforting about a stew on a chilly night…comforting and so delicious. That’s what makes this dish a regular in my fall/winter dinner rotation.
The key to making this Chicken Stew amazing, is to use really good chicken. Chicken thighs are delicious, but if you want to take this dish to the next level, use chicken breast. Delicious tender chicken breast in a creamy white gravy….oh my, so good!
Chicken Stew Recipe Tips!
Timing:This recipe does take a bit of time to prepare (about 20 minutes to prepare, and 1 1/2 hours baking time), but it’s well worth the effort, because when that dinner hour arrives all you have to do is make a salad and set the table. Enjoy!
What cut of chicken to use?You can use less expensive cuts of chicken like thighs for this recipe, or as a real treat use chicken breast.
Adding the peas. Sometimes I add the peas about 10 minutes before serving time so they’re still green and not mushy.
