Slow Cooker Chicken Stew

Fall weather is in the air and I have dug my slow cooker out from under my cupboard. After all, it makes meals while I am homeschooling my kids with very little help from me once it gets going. This slow cooker chicken stew is perfect for busy fall days.

Because we have harvested a lot from our garden already we had an abundance of fresh vegetables to use for this, which was great because I forgot to pick up chicken last week and need something to fill us up after a busy day.

This is super easy to make, and perfect for making for busy days or even just homeschool days.

What you need:

How to make Slow Cooker Chicken Stew:

Toss some chicken breasts, diced potatoes, and diced carrots into your slow cooker. Add chicken bouillon and water, salt ,and pepper to taste.

Set your slow cooker to low for 6 hours or high for 3. I recommend using the slow setting as root vegetables aren’t always cooked thoroughly on high for 3 hours.

If you want to make clean-up easy get some slow cooker liners. Cook your meal in liners and then toss them out when you are finished. Nothing gets easier than no dishes to clean.

An hour before serving add in green beans, and corn. You don’t want them to get mushy by being in your crock pot all day. If you are only cooking it for the 3 hours, throw them in at the beginning too.

Mix together melted butter and flour, overheat or not, and slowly mix into your slow cooker about 20 minutes before serving.
