Crock-Pot Chicken Stew

I wanted to use up some things from the pantry and freezer and came up with this for dinner today. I served it over stuffing.

Crock-Pot Chicken Stew

2 bone-in chicken breasts

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 can chicken broth

1 bag baby carrots

4 ribs of celery cut into 1/2" pieces

Black pepper

1 tsp poulry seasoning

3 Tbsp flour

water.

Mix the soup, broth, pepper, and seasoning in a crock-pot.

Add the carrots, celery, then the chicken breasts on top, bone-side up.

Cover and cook on low for 6 hours then turn up to high for 1 hour.

Mix the flour and water to create a slurry. Remove the chicken from the crock-pot, mix in the slurry, recover, and cook until the liquid thickens to a gravy.

Let the chicken cool, remove the meat from the bone,
chunk the meat, and add back to the thickened sauce.

Stir, and serve over either stuffing, rice, or mashed potatoes.

I just have to say that a crockpot ruins chicken breasts. Theyll be extraordinarily dry and overcooked, but the sauce might mask it.

Chicken breasts cook very quickly and every second they overcook in a crockpot ( or other method) degrades them more and more.

Maybe better with thighs which stand up to long cooking much better.

When I use the boneless/skinless breasts in recipes they do seem to be dry more often than not. This time I used bone-in/skin on breasts because that is what I had in the freezer.

This might be tomorrow nights dinner.

Depends how much time I have in the A.M. to put it together before I go to work.

Looks good.

Think I'll add some taters.

Thanks for sharing.
