Creamy Chicken Stew With Vegetables



A few years ago i came across this and now it is dinner rotation once a week . I like simple and easy receipes that seem like they took alot of effort to make .This is one of those receipes. My husband loves this and whenever i make it, he used to tell how great it is. This is a receipe for  a chicken stew with multi colour vegetables . Chicken stew with  carrots,  potatoes , capsicum ( both green and red  and i missed yellow colour )and onions. My hearty suggest is that, adding  6 – 8 pieces of raw carrot, along with cooked chicken and boiled potatoes, to bring in some colour in the stew to make it look more appealing but make sure that you use very few small pieces without adding more carrot flavour to the stew . Also it is advisable not to go for boneless chicken as the dish  will lack the flavour and juices produced by bones while cooking . And country chicken goes well in stew more than broiler one, so am using country chicken here .

can you imagine the delight of having  this rich and creamy chicken stew with the elegant and pretty looking laced beauty, paalappam as a breakfast on a weekend ? its  awesome divine ! I can easily make a claim that this is one of the best breakfast in the world ! Any way am sorry( due to dinner time  receipe )  i unfortunately served this along with  butter dosa.
