This stew is becoming a new staple in my house. I’ve made it numerous times already and enjoyed it immensely each time. It kinda has that comforting chicken soup vibe to it and feels so good to eat. The chicken is slow cooked, tender, and easily shreds apart. The stew is well-spiced, flavorful, nourishing, and loaded with veggies. It’s the epitome of a perfect meal and has been especially nice on some of the chillier days we’ve been having. It may officially be spring, but it’s still cold! Plus, you really can’t beat curry, can you?
Meanwhile, did you catch my segment on KATU Afternoon Live from last Friday? If not, check it out HERE. I made my magic green muffins that I shared last week for St. Patrick’s Day. Check out that recipe HERE if you haven’t already.
Cheers and enjoy!

- Add the sweet potatoes and carrots to the slow cooker and let cook for another 2 hours. Break up and shred the chicken a bit, and then add the kale and peas. Let cook for another 20-30 minutes or until kale has softened a bit.
