Stew of Kings

A little hardcore hobbit project action today. In the game the stew of kings is made out of chicken stock, tater, and uncooked chicken. So basically this is a chicken stew. A tasty one at that! A nice lighter stew alternative to the beef stew. Eventhough our crockpot of awesome is out of commission I was able to pick up a small crockpot to get this done. It will do until I find a nice 8 quart or higher one on sale. I like my crockpots extra doom sized. The small one will then be in charge of doing up some nice dips and fondue in the fall I think. Anyways, on to the stew of kings!

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 large shalot, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 4 red potatoes, quartered
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 pinch herbs de provence
  • 1 tsp flour
  • Pepper
  1. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper, brown in a skillet 2-3 minutes per side. Allow to rest 5 minutes, slice into cubes and place in crockpot.
  2. Add shalot to the skillet and allow to brown.
  3. Add wine to the skillet to deglaze and pour everything into the crockpot.
  4. Combine the rest of the ingredients in crockpot, give it a stir.
  5. Cook for 6-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high. Depends on your crock.

Serves 4 (about 1 1/2 cup each). Each serving contains 391 calories, 1.9 grams of fat and 6.9 grams of fiber. A nice filling meal. Lovely served with some bread or scone to catch that bit of gravy the dish makes. Nummy!
