Chicken Stew in a Bread Bowl
Contributed by: Wendy Kennedy of Canadian Country Gifts
Have you ever had Chicken Stew in a Bread Bowl? Tim Horton's used to carry it and it was a real treat. When they quit making it my family and I were really disappointed. Recently I was in a
bakery that sells `soup/stew bread bowls'. I decided I'd give it a try and we love it. If you can't find bread bowls use extra large buns or small bread loaves.
- 2 or 3 boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
- 2 aups cubed potatoes
- 1/2 cup sliced carrots
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1/4 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. parsley flakes
Brown chicken breasts in a cast iron pan. Add vegetables. Add
enough water to cover chicken and vegetables. Add seasoning.
Bring to a boil and cook until vegetables are soft. Make sure to
stir enough to scrape the `brown' off the bottom of the pan (that's
what makes great gravy!) Whisk 4 tbs. of flour with a cup of
water and add to pan. Turn up the heat and stir until it boils and
thickens (add more flour/water if necessary).
Cut out the center of the bread bowls and fill with stew.
I always decide how much meat and vegetables to use by
how many people will be eating and how much they eat!
