WinterChickenStewThis tasty, healthy stew will warm up your friends and family on these cold winter evenings.

Recipe below or CLICK HERE for the BBC Good Food link.

Here is the ingredients you will need:

1 tbsp sunflower oil
1 onion, finely chopped
4 garlic clove, sliced
1.4 liters hot chicken stock
1 large potato, finely grated
1 tbsp fresh thyme leaf
2 tsp fresh rosemary leaves
2 x 850g family packs skinless chicken thighs (count the number in the pack- you need 16 in total)
6 carrot, halved length-ways and cut into chunks
2 parsnip, halved length-ways and cut into chunks
3 leeks, well washed and thickly sliced
Peas, to serve (optional)


Heat the oil in your largest pan – an extra-large wok with a lid is ideal.
Fry the onion and garlic for a few minutes until soft, then pour in the stock and stir in the potato and herbs.
Add the chicken and bring to the boil.
Stir in the carrots, parsnips and leeks, then cover the pan and leave to simmer on a low heat for 40-45 mins, stirring every now and then, until the chicken is tender.
Cool and freeze any extra portions, and use within 2 months – thaw at room temperature, then reheat in a pan until bubbling.
Serve with peas, if you like.

Enjoy! Thank you BBC Good Food!
