Spanish Chicken Stew Recipe
This chicken stew recipe is the perfect recipe for everyday dinner. The soup is so delicious and is from simple ingredients. It can be cooked using a crockpot or a Dutch oven like the one I used for this recipe.
The recipe uses dry white wine. I highly recommend Sauvignon Blanc. It also calls for pine nuts as one of the main ingredients, which you may skip and replace with a blanched almond. Pine nuts are a bit pricey but their taste is unique and they add another element of consistency to the stew which is a plus in my book. The meat came out juicy and tender and easily parts from the bone.
A Healthy Chicken Stew
As a white meat meal, the chicken stew is a great option for those of us trying to cut down on red meat but still need to love something flavorful and filling. Adding in vegetables and nuts only makes the dish healthier. I probably consume more chicken than any other meat, I love it in all forms. Stew chicken (aka casserole chicken) has become one of my favorite ways to enjoy it as I love being able to drop ingredients in and come back hours later to a great meal.
