Chicken stew is a truly heart-warming dish. Up the comfort factor even more and serve with a generous helping of Flora Buttery mashed potato and green beans. And, as it freezes really well, why not make double the amount in one go and save half for a super quick and easy meal on another day.

Instructions

  1. Heat Flora Cuisine in a large saucepan. Add the onions and cook them for 3-4 minutes on a medium heat until the onions soften but do not brown. Add the garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes on a medium heat. Add the chicken broth, grated potato and herbs. Bring to the boil then simmer on low heat for 4-6 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining Flora Cuisine in a large frying pan. Add the chicken thighs and cook on medium-high heat for 4-6 minutes on each side to brown the meat.
  3. Add the chicken thighs to the stock. Add the carrots, parsnip, leeks and swede. Bring to the boil, then simmer on a low heat with the pan covered for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally until the chicken is tender.
  4. Add the savoy cabbage and chopped parsley, simmer for another 5 minutes and serve.
  5. To serve, sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve with potato and seasonal greens.
