Simply One Pot - Stew Chicken

One dish that I've always wanted to cook... simple, nutritious and superbly yummy!!!
Stew chicken in a pot, perfect for a busy, lazy mom like me... everything to be dumped into one pot and let it just stew for as long as it takes... ;)
This was served together with steamed rice and some stir-fry vege to the kids, and they simply loved it... oooh the gravy was filled with all the essence of the ingredients that simply was too flavourful not to lap the plates clean...

Here's how you can make it too...

Ingredients -
1kg chicken winglets (or you may use a whole chicken cut into 4-6 pieces)
1 large white onion
2-3 carrots (cut into chunks)
4 potatoes (cut into chunks)
Celery (optional - I didn't add it into this pot though)
2 large tomatoes (cut into wedges)
2-3 corn on cob (cut into chunks)
4-6 cups of chicken stock (I stirred 3-4tbsp of concentrated chicken stock into 4-6 cups water)
2 tbsp cooking oil
Salt to taste.

Method of preparation -
1) Heat oil in a frying pan and fry the vegetables (onions, carrots, celery) for a min or two, set it aside.
2) Add the chicken stock into the pot (you may use crock pot) and all the ingredients except salt.
3) If you are using the stove to cook, bring it to a boil and simmer for about an hour+. If you are using crock pot, you'll have to cook it for over 3hrs.
4) Add salt to taste. Serve!

Bon Appetit!!! :)

Hi Pauline, I tried this recipe but found that there seems to be too much water and it tasted more like soup than stew. And the chicken came out tasteless. I wondered if I've got something wrong somewhere. Is the chicken stock some commercial stock that I should purchase?
