What goes into this chicken stew recipe

This is an image with the ingredients for making chicken stew

Chicken; You can use bone-in, skin-on thighs, and drumsticks that won’t be overcooked after such a long cooking time.

Vegetables; Use your favorite vegetables but be mindful of their cooking times. So the ones that take long to cook you add the earlier and the quicker to cook like green beans you add them late. I went simple with just potatoes, carrots, and tomatoes.

Spices; I used Robertson chicken spice, paprika, black pepper, and mixed herbs

Tomato paste and flour; These are the thickeners and the tomato paste add a lovely colour

Water/chicken stock;


How to make chicken stew

Heat oil on high heat, meanwhile take half a teaspoon of salt and black pepper and rub on the chicken pieces. Brown the chicken pieces on both sides and set them aside.

In the same pot, you browned the chicken, (if the oil is too much discard some) and saute the onions until they are clear. Add the carrots, chopped tomatoes cook for about 5mins, and then add tomato paste, spices, and flour mix everything well.

Add back the browned chicken pieces and stir until everything is well mixed and the chicken is coated in spices.

Pour the chicken stock or water, close and bring to a boil for 45 mins on medium heat.

After 45 mins add the potatoes, lower the heat and let simmer for 45 more mins
