Ragout of Chicken, Sweet Potatoes, and Broccoli...
Serves: 4
The New Family Cookbook for People with Diabetes

- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon paprika, preferably Hungarian
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 medium to large skinless chicken thighs (1-1/2 pounds)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 large onion, thinly sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1-1/3 cups homemade Chicken Broth, or canned reduced-sodium
chicken broth
- 2 medium sweet potatoes (1 lb total), peeled and quartered
- 1 bay leaf
- 3 cups broccoli florets (8 ounces)
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Combine the flour with the paprika, pepper, and salt. Dredge the
chicken, using all of the flour mixture. Heat the oil in a large,
deep nonstick skillet over
medium heat. Saute the chicken in the oil until lightly browned,
about 4 minutes per side. Add the onion and garlic; cook 1 minute.

Add the broth, potatoes, and bay leaf. Cover and simmer over low heat
30 minutes. Add the broccoli; cover and continue to simmer until the
chicken and potatoes are tender and the broccoli is crisp-tender,
about 5 minutes.
Remove and discard the bay leaf.

Remove the chicken and vegetables to a serving platter; boil the pan
juices over high heat until thickened, about 5 minutes. Spoon the
sauce over the chicken and vegetables; sprinkle with lemon zest.
