Slow Cooker Mediterranean Chicken Stew
Hi everyone, I’m Mary Ellen from That’s My Home. I am sharing a favorite recipe of mine for the Slow Cooker, a Mediterranean Chicken Stew. It is the perfect summertime meal and it keeps the kitchen cool. What I really like about this dish is that is has olives and lots of vegetables in it! I meant to put a zucchini in it towards the end and totally forgot it. Feel free to add one if you desire about a hour before you plan to serve this.
To make this dish easy on the prep I used frozen baby onions and frozen carrots. I cut the chicken into smaller pieces and removed the skin to get rid of most of the fat. I added the back of the chicken too in one piece to help enrich the broth, remove it before serving. One of the things I love most about a Mediterranean diet is that it is full of vegetables.
At the last minute I decided we needed some French bread to go with that wonderful broth that had developed and just as I started to run to the store (actually drive) I looked at the clock and had just enough time to make some dinner rolls instead. They came out of the oven just as my friends arrived for dinner. These Soft French Dinner Rolls were perfect with the stew and fast to make too.
