Healing Chicken Stew with Pippa Roscoe

Healing Chicken Stew    

Having recently recovered from the flu, I rediscovered an old favourite that always hits the spot when I’m not feeling well. All in one pot and under an hour to make, it’s perfect for comfort and ease! I hope you enjoy!
Two chicken breasts
1 onion
1 large carrot
1 courgette
Salt and Pepper
Italian herbs
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 tin of Butter Beans
½ a pint of Chicken Stock 
Large glass of red wine


Cut the chicken into inch sized cubes and fry in olive oil in a large casserole dish. Once seared on each side, remove from the pan, add a little more oil and fry the onions, carrots and garlic until onions are translucent. Add a table spoon of flour, salt and pepper, and Italian herbs and stir for about thirty seconds. Add the red wine and let that simmer until the flour is dissolved into the beginnings of your sauce. Add the chicken, courgette, broccoli butter beans, chopped tomatoes and stir. Then pour in the stock and bring to the boil. When that’s been bubbling away for about five minutes, put it in the oven for half an hour, forty minutes, without a lid so the sauce gets nice and thick. It’s a delicious stew that you can serve on its own, or you could add rice, or a delicious hunk of buttered bread. (Also feel free to chuck in a handful of spinach!).
