Super Mom's Stew/Soup

                                                                  Friendly Printable

2 pounds of chicken.  I used Drumsticks and chicken breasts
1 large box chicken broth, about 28 ounce
3 cups of water
2 teaspoon salt
2 stacks of celery. Chopped
1 large onion. Chopped
3 large carrots. Chopped
2 tablespoon olive oil
6 large tomatoes chopped or 1 large can crushed tomatoes
2 large potatoes. chopped
4 garlic cloves. Chopped
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoon hot sauce
1 teaspoon dried thyme, fresh is better
2 teaspoon bay leaves
Stew Instructions:
Using large pan and cook chicken in water for 15 minutes. Remove the chicken and shredded. I don't shred the drumsticks, my kids love the bones.
On stove in a large pan, add olive oil and onions. After cooking for 2 minutes, add chicken breasts and drum sticks, celery, carrots, garlic and saute about 15 minutes.
Stir the water, potatoes and crushed tomatoes. Add the herbs, salt and lemon juice. Cook on medium heat for about 45 minutes.
Here you have your stew. We like to eat it with orzo or brown rice.
Soup instructions:
The same stew, add the chicken broth and cook for 1o
minutes more. Remove the drumsticks.  I used hand blender
and puree in the pan. That is it. How simple is that? If you
have a picky eater kids, they wouldn't know if you put

Spinach or Beans. Most of the time, I add Spinach, 1/4 cup

beans or lentils. This recipe is great for winter. If you are

busy, chop everything the night before and cook it on slow cooker.
I added 4 drumsticks for my youngest son and removed it for the stew only. By the way, you can do it with Beef as well.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. I always appreciate your comments.
