This Chicken Stew Deserves a Name!

I invented this tonight, from the leftovers of a rotisserie chicken that was hiding in the back of the fridge. It was sooooo good I decided to write down the recipe so I could make it again. Here it is:

No Name Yet Chicken Soup/Stew

½ a rotisserie chicken, shredded (remove skin)

1 regular can diced tomatoes, include juice

1 can sweet corn, drained

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 soup can of water

1 cup cooked wild rice

1 tsp chipotle seasoning

pinch of garlic

pinch of salt

pinch of black pepper

Place all ingredients in crockpot and set on low for 6 hours. The two of us ate this to the last drop, but it could easily be doubled, using the whole rotisserie chicken and it would feed a family of 4 – 6, especially if some were smaller children (who likely eat less than my hungry husband did.)

After we’d each had a hearty bowl, he asked, “Bev, do you want any more?” and immediately proceeded to scrape the last drop of it into his bowl.

I topped mine with salsa; he did not. I’m pretty sure my bowl was better than his. I served it with dinner rolls, one for me, two for him. Yummy! I'd show you a photo, but we ate the evidence.

How about "Don's Favorite Chicken Stew." Super creative, I know :) But you won't forget it!

It sounds yummy, and since Chris loves soup even more than I do, I'm fairly certain I can squeeze this into my week's menus--which already include 3 soups/chilis/stews!!

The stew sounds very yummy! I'm going to have to try this!

I couldn't comment on the post above (couldn't find the comment thingy - lol) so I'm doing it here. I'm glad that you didn't delete your blog. I really enjoy reading it. And I struggle with mine too. It's a family blog, but it got taken over by food allergies, but sometimes I bring it back to family. I try to find a balance. You have a sweet, honest writing style, Bev. I just enjoy reading whatever you write because it comes from you:)
