Easy Irish Chicken Stew (Gluten Free, Grain Free, Paleo, Dairy Free, Egg Free)

In pre-celebration of St. Patrick’s day, I have decided to post a family favorite. My mother’s been making this stew for years. Not only is it delicious, it requires a minimal amount of effort and very little time to prepare. Yay for working full-time AND cooking healthy yummy meals!

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 32 ounce carton of Chicken Broth (I get Organic)
1 Pre-cooked Rotisserie Chicken
1 Small Package of Frozen Pearl Onions (or Chopped Frozen Onion if you can’t find any!)
1 Small package of Frozen Carrots
1 Small package of Frozen Peas (Gotta have some GREEN!)
2 Small Red Potatoes, diced
2 teaspoons Olive Oil
Instant Mashed Potatoes, to taste
Salt & Pepper, to taste

Pour your chicken broth into a large pot, and heat up. While it’s heating, pull apart the rotisserie chicken and place all of the meat, in pieces, into the warming broth. To prepare the diced potatoes, place into microwave-safe bowl, toss with olive oil, and cover loosely with saran wrap. Microwave for 2-3 minutes, or until potatoes start to soften. Add frozen vegetables to broth and chicken while your potatoes are cooking. Add potatoes to mixture once they are a little softer. Stir occasionally, and keep stew on the heat for about 20-25 minutes. Your potato softness will indicate when the stew is done. To thicken up the stew, stir in a little instant mashed potatoes, while constantly stirring, until it reaches a thickness to your liking. Do not pour in too much at once, it takes about 30 seconds to start thickening. Add salt and pepper to your liking, and TADAAA!!! STEW!!!


This stew reheats really well too, and goes GREAT with garlic bread (which you can buy OUTSTANDING gluten-free French bread from Jake’s Gluten Free Market’s Bakery… ๐Ÿ™‚
