Cheap Chicken Stew!

Published Friday, 10 March, 2017 by Steph

Cheap chicken stew! 15 min to prepare, 40-45min to cook. / Serves: 1 / Nutritional info: Contains 3 of your 5 a day! Super healthy and delicious!


  • (1KG) STEW PACK (I BROUGHT MINE FROM ICELAND FOR £1) and included carrots onion swede and leak
  • Raw chicken
  • (oxo) chicken stock x2
  • Sunflower oil
  • Garlic cloves x4 (optional)
  • Thyme and rosemary (optional)


1) Cut up all the vegetables into chunks (not too small)

2) Cut chicken into small strips

3) Boil around 1.4L water in kettle. Once boiled, crush 2 chicken stock cubes into hot water and stir.

4) Heat oil in large pan. Add onion (and garlic if desired) for a few minutes

5) Pour in all the stock (it may seem like a lot of water but this will all disappear! Add thyme and rosemary if desired)

6) Add chicken and bring to boil

7) Add all remaining vegetables and simmer for 40-45 minutes

8) Keep an eye on the pan. Stir every now and again. All the water will eventually go so keep adding some hot water from the kettle.

9) After 40-45 minutes, check chicken is properly cooked (it should have browned) then serve.

Volia! Depending on how much chicken you use, you can put any extra potions in a container in the fridge. Should serve 2-3 portions.
