Recipe instructions Chicken Stew

  1. Step 1

    Heat oil in a big pot on medium-high heat. Put chicken in the pot and cook for 6 minutes, turning once halfway through. Then, place the chicken on a plate, leaving the fat in the pan (it should be 1 1/2 Tbsp, if not, add a little oil) and reduce the heat to medium.

  2. Step 2

    After that, saute onions, carrots, and celery for 5 minutes. Finally, add garlic and saute for 1 more minute.

  3. Step 3

    Add 3 1/2 cups of chicken broth and potatoes to a pot. Season with rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then add mushrooms and chicken.

  4. Step 4

    Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the pot, and simmer for about 25 minutes while stirring occasionally or until the potatoes are tender.

  5. Step 5

    In a separate small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat during the last 5 minutes of soup cooking. Whisk flour in a saucepan and cook for a minute.

  6. Step 6

    Gradually pour in one cup of chicken broth while whisking continuously. Keep whisking until the mixture boils and thickens, then remove from heat.

  7. Step 7

    Pour the flour mixture into the soup once it is done. Add the greens and serve the soup warm.
