I’m always on the lookout for crockpot meals and this is another one I found on Pinterest.  I thought it was missing something and now I realize I left off the final step….. next time.

Tuscan Chicken Stew

 

To your crockpot (I used 5 quart) add:

4-6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-2 inch chunks
3-4 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 stalk celery, sliced
1 small onion, diced
4 red potatoes, cut into 1-2 inch chunks
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon fennel (I didn’t use this)
2 cloves garlic, minced (I forgot to put this in too)
1/2 teaspoon salt (add more later if needed)

Mix together the following and add to crockpot:
2 cups chicken stock (I used 4 and it made it more soup, less stew)
1 Tablespoon tomato paste
2 Tablespoon white wine

Cook on low 4-6 hours.

Fifteen minutes before serving whisk together the following, stir in and cook 15 minutes more:

1/4 cup water
2 T cornstarch
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary OR 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
