Made with vegetables, chicken, broth, and a touch of cream, this chicken stew is hearty enough to fill you up without leaving you ready for a nap. It’s the kind of comfort food that makes you feel good.
In a large soup pot, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sauté for 2 -3 minutes until the chicken is browned.
Remove the chicken from the pot and set it aside on a plate.
Add the remaining tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat and add the onions, carrots, and celery. Cook for 3 minutes or until the veggies are softened and golden brown. Add the seasonings, salt, pepper, potatoes, chicken broth, water, and chicken pieces. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 – 30 minutes, until the potatoes are fork-tender.
Stir in the green peas and half and half, cook for another 10 minutes, or until thickened.
