Slow Cooker Chicken & Gnocchi Stew #Recipe


Stew Recipes


What you need:
  • 3 large carrots cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 2 small red potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast (thighs can be used as a replacement)
  • 1 package potato gnocchi
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • Hot sauce, optional

Directions:

Place  the carrots, celery, potato and green onions in slow cooker. Top with chicken; sprinkle with the sage, garlic, salt and pepper. Add broth and water. Cover and cook on high for about 5-6 hours or until chicken is tender.

Once chicken is tender enough you should be able to break it up in the pot without removing it. I prefer this method simply because I’ve splashed myself with hot water one to many times removing the chicken to shred it. Take a plastic or wooden spoon/spatula and press chicken against the side and it will fall apart, continue doing this until the big pieces are shredded. If you prefer, you can remove, shred and place chicken back into slow cooker, carefully.

Mix  together cornstarch and cold water until smooth; stir into stew. Add Gnocchi. Cover and continue cooking on high for 30 minutes or until thickened. Season with pepper sauce if desired; serve.

I love Gnocchi and was desperately trying to find a stew recipe like I remembered my Grandmother making. I adapted this recipe adapted from Tastes of Home based on what I had on hand and how I remembered it. I hope you enjoy :)

This looks like a great recipe and I'll bet that little bit of sage gives it lots of flavor
