Easy Peasy Chicken Stew

I've been laid up in bed for the last couple of weeks feeling pathetically sorry for myself with a chest infection and needed to eat some comfort food

Luckily I had picked up some fresh chicken breasts just before I conked out and thanks to my beloved slow cooker I managed to rustle up a tasty meal with them and some tins lurking in my cupboard...

In the morning I chucked in...

2 chicken breasts (roughly chopped in to chunks)
1 can cannelloni beans
1 can chicken & mushroom soup (Morrison's cheapie!)
slightly less than 1/2 pint stock (made from a veggie Oxo cube & boiling water) 
teaspoon Provençal herbs

When I woke up in the afternoon to go to the doctor I added a tin of peas and slung in some herby dumplings

So when I got back home I had a lovely filling supper and there was enough for reheating the next day... being poorly is never quite as bad with a good bowl of chicken stew and dumplings


  1. Oooh, that looks lovely Rae. I might have a go myself. I'm sory to hear you've been unwell. I hope you're on the mend soon. xx

  2. That looks delicious. I've heard that chicken soup is very good for illness. This is bound to be the same.
    Hoping you are feeling heaps better before too long.
