Chicken Stew – Simple Chicken Stew with Potatoes

Chicken Stew: I love to eat this recipe over rice with a slice of avocado and depending on what I have on my hand right I make variations of this Chicken Stew according to that; sometimes I add yucca or sometimes baby potatoes. It can also be cooked with beer, so avoid alcohol use water.

In West African countries like Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Ghana stews are a very popular and most loved cuisine. Countries like Kenya also love Chicken Stew Recipes. There are different kinds of stews from beef stew to oxtails stew but chicken stew is always the one which I love since from the last few years I have learned many variations and I am sure you will also like this recipe.

How to Make Chicken Stew?

To make the stew extra flavorful traditional stews starts with the browning of chicken which needs a lot of oil and oil many lots of calories so to cut down on the use of oil you may omit this part.

In this Chicken Stew Recipe, I have used chicken tenders but if you want it to be more flavorful then I highly recommend to use chicken thighs because the fat which comes out during the making of stew gives it a buttery flavor.

And one thing you need the note is that if you are using the chicken breasts you won’t simmer the breasts too long because it will be then hard to chew and it will totally mess up the recipe. So I highly recommend to use 1 tbsp oil in it and then transfer it to a plate and make sure to cook the diced chicken.

Simple Chicken Stew

A few added spices like thyme, paprika, curry, and onions make this recipe intensely flavorful. You can use fresh or puree tomatoes, canned tomatoes. In my opinion, a good Chicken stew is one which has a less sharp taste but has a noticeable tomato presence.

This Chicken Stew can easily feed a crowd simply by adding more potatoes and it also freezes and refrigerates well. whenever my family needs a quick meal I always try to make a double batch and they happily eat it all week long!
It will be ingrained in your heart once you make this chicken stew, your taste buds, and your stomach will definitely like this.
