Chicken and Mushroom Stew

Soft, juicy chicken, combined with cremini mushrooms and herbs make this one of the most comforting meals on a cold or warm night. Serve over egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or by itself. Make sure you have delicious bread to gather up the savory juices.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or more to taste

  • 1 extra large onion, diced

  • 2 (16 ounce) packages cremini mushrooms, sliced

  • 6 medium carrots, sliced

  • 3 stalks celery, diced

  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs

  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 (32 ounce) carton beef stock

  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary, or more to taste


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat; stir in onion. Cook and stir until onion has softened and started to brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Add mushrooms, carrots, and celery; saute for 3 to 4 minutes more.

  2. Add chicken thighs, garlic, a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Stir really well then add beef stock and rosemary. Bring to a boil.

  3. Lower the heat and simmer until chicken is very tender and no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 1 1/2 hours. The mushrooms will give off lots of liquid during the simmering process to meld with the broth.

Cook's Note:

I keep the chicken thighs whole, because they break down into soft, delectable bites, during the simmering process. However, you can also cube them before cooking.
