I made a wonderful chicken stew/soup the other day fantastic for winter, loaded with veggies and great flavors with the leeks, garlic and herbs and so good for you....

  • 6 boneless and skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 cups of chicken stock and 3 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 2 sticks of chopped celery
  • 2 sliced leeks
  • one zucchini and one yellow squash
  • 2 chopped tomatoes
  • one pack of chopped mushrooms
  • one spoon Italian herbs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 frozen green beans
  • olive oil

  1. saute the onions, leeks and garlic in olive oil for 5 minutes add the celery, mushrooms and squash and saute another few minutes
  2. then add the tomatoes, and herbs salt and pepper to taste and saute on low for 3 minutes
  3. then add the chicken stock and vegetable stock and the chicken cover and simmer on a low heat for 45 minutes to one hour
