Slow Cooker Chicken Stew

Slow Cooker Chicken Stew


"A savory autumn stew with apple, red potatoes, onion and seasoning. This is a very easy tasty chicken dish I concocted when I was trying to think of a dish like pot roast yet using chicken rather than beef. My husband hates mushrooms, so I tried condensed celery soup, and it works great. This dish is light yet very zesty and full of flavor. You can substitute using chicken thighs, but it will increase calories and fat. I think using biscuit gravy mix rather than onion gravy mix would work (the flavor would go well with chicken), adding richness, although I haven't tried it that way yet, but again, it would add more fat and calories to this dish. Serve with a side of rice or over noodles."

I have the pickest husband ever so I changed the soup to cream of chicken. I also tried it with the country gravy instead of onion gravy. We really liked it. My potatoes were not done in tim...

Very bland, needs something, I'm not sure what. Potatoes took longer to cook then the rest of the stew. I suggest using less water, the broth was too watery.

This wasn't too bad. I made a few tweaks based on other reviews and past experiences. I definitely have more ideas for the next time. I used chicken breasts with the bone and skin, sauteed ...
