Can anything be more complete than this Wholesome Chicken & Vegetable Stew? A hot bowl of nourishing chicken vegetable stew can give a real kick start to your immunity.  Just clean ingredients which pack a pot load of flavour on a weekend night.

Chicken Stew is a delightful meal with chicken, onions, beans, cabbage and carrots. All simmered for a long time in a bountifully seasoned chicken broth until succulent. Today made this Wholesome Chicken & Vegetable Stew which has low carbs and is suited for the Keto diet.

Chicken & Vegetable Stew

This recipe is a wholesome meal in itself. Full of protein, healthy carbs and veggies. You can serve it with any bread to soak up the rich broth but I served it with steamed rice.

A really easy chicken stew recipe, it is packed with tender chicken and vegetables simmered together in the seasoned broth. Chicken or vegetable stock thickened with a spoonful of flour or corn starch gives it a wonderful consistency.

I am vegetarian and I generally have Veg Corn Soup whenever I get fresh corn. Another favourite is Tomato Carrot soup with toast or croutons. A recent favourite is Hot & Sour Soup.

My writing was limited to school essays and projects for my kids and out of the blue, my writing career began with writing articles for the magazine section of a reputed national newspaper. I rediscovered my best subject at school and began writing with gusto. I had a weekend column in the newspaper which was well appreciated. I started off writing about Interiors and Gardens and later diverse topics like Fashion, trends, food and events in the city. Juggling my time between various jobs down the years and my writing, I have written content for fliers, brochures for colleges, speeches, social media content and also website content. I love writing and I am open to writing on a plethora of topics. My blog has some interesting insights into my life and travels but now it is mainly a food blog as I am growing organic vegetables and cooking my own produce is very therapeutic. Read my blogs to know me better. I write from my heart and what I write is what I feel... I feel a feel, A funny feel A funny feel, feel I! If you feel the feel I feel You'll feel the same as I!!
