Harvest Chicken Stew--really good for the slow cooker.
10 medium carrots, cut in rounds
2 cups diced parsnips
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced into bite-size pieces
1 red onion, halved and sliced
2 apples, peeled and cut into chunks
3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Chopped fresh chives and parsley
4 cups cooked quinoa, brown rice, or barley, to serve
Layer the carrots and parsnips on the bottom of the slow cooker. Combine the salt, ginger, and pepper; sprinkle half of the mixture over the vegetables.
In a nonstick skillet, sauté the chicken and onions until lightly browned; transfer to the slow cooker. Top with the apples. Combine the water and balsamic vinegar; pour over the chicken and apples. Sprinkle with the remaining seasoning mixture. Cover the slow cooker and cook on high for 3 hours or low for 7 hours until vegetables are tender and chicken juices run clear. Stir before serving. Sprinkle with chives and parsley, and serve with cooked quinoa, brown rice, or barley
THANK YOU, this sounds wonderful! If you have any more easy chicken recipes, please post! Between my husband refusing to eat red meat for political reasons and my OCD daughter having raw chicken as a trigger, I often end up making 2 dinners, which I hate. Recipes like this w/o red meat and with the chicken already cooked before dinner time are a huge help!
(And I love parsnips, my dad always made them for us!)
