Chicken Mushroom Stew

Rated as 3.88 out of 5 Stars

"The Chicken Mushroom Stew has a light, fresh taste from the celery, with an earthy undertone from the mushrooms. I used white button mushrooms, but you could play with the flavors by using different varieties such as cremini or portobello. Serve in bowls. A nice crusty bread to mop up the liquid makes it all just perfect!"

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat, and cook and stir the chicken until lightly browned but still pink inside, about 5 minutes. Set chicken aside. Reduce heat to medium, and melt the butter in the same pot; cook and stir the leek and onion just until starting to brown, about 8 minutes. Stir in the garlic, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute, then stir in the carrot and celery. Cook the vegetables for 1 or 2 more minutes, and stir in the mushrooms; cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms have released their liquid and the juice begins to dry up, about 10 minutes.
  2. Pour in the white wine, and scrape pot to loosen and dissolve the brown flavor bits left in the bottom. Stir in the stock, and bring the mixture to a simmer. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  3. Knot a short piece of kitchen twine tightly around the sprigs of thyme, rosemary, tarragon, oregano, parsley, and bay leaves to make a tidy package, and place the herb bouquet into the pot.
  4. Mix in the chicken pieces, cover the pot, and allow to simmer very gently until the chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes. Do not boil. For a thicker stew, whisk flour with water in a small bowl, and whisk into the simmering sauce; allow to thicken, about 3 minutes. Remove herb bundle before serving in bowls.

This was okay. As stated in the description it does have a light, fresh taste. Not overly flavorful and I was looking for more of bang.

Loved this! Yes, it mild tasting but that's part of what makes it great. It's a nice, hearty, warming stew great to dip bread in! Definitely recommend it, I made it as written except I forgot to...

Fantastic! The boys all loved it. Very flavorful and comforting. I did put a small lump of arborio rice in the bowl first instead of thickening.

In general it was okay, but it seemed really bland. I added some bouillon cubes and doubled the garlic, but still seemed sort of plain.

Very good. I also noticed that, while it was subtly very tasty, it did benefit from a few tweaks. I sautéed the mushrooms before adding. I served with carrots and parsnips in the stew. I added t...

delicious! I need to improve my bouquet skills or get an infuser for the herbs.
