Chicken Stew

Note: One more day until I get my grocery budget "restocked". I found this recipe on Southern Plate's blog and knew that I had everything to make it except a few potatoes. I knew I could swing that so I ran by the grocery store and picked up those items and then threw all of this in the crock pot. It is enough for two meals! I adjusted the recipe a little so I could cook it in the crock pot. Southern Plate's original recipe is found here.

Chicken Stew

Ingredients:
5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 lg onion, chopped
1 large can chicken broth
1 large can crushed tomatoes
6 med.potatoes, peeled and diced
3 T sugar
2 c. frozen or canned whole kernel corn
2 T butter
5 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper

Directions:
Place chicken breast in crock pot. Pour chicken broth and crushed tomatoes over chicken. Cook on high heat until chicken is done enough to shred (about 4 hours). Shred chicken with two forks in crock pot. Add onion, potatoes, sugar, corn, butter, salt and pepper. Cook for an additional three hours or until potatoes are well done.

Delicious served with cornbread. This soup is even better the second day.

Freezes GREAT! This would be great to cook and freezer to have ready for later meals or to take to a sick friend.

SOunds great. I would be able to do this only if my husband is home to add the rest of the stuff in.

Love -- You should go to Southern Plate's site and get her original recipe. It doesn't involve the crock-pot at all. I bet hers was ten times better than mine anyway!! If you like my recipes, you will LOVE hers. She and I must have grown up next door to each other and not known it. We have some of the exact same recipes!
