Mmmm....Yum

With traveling the past two weeks and the winter weather we had this past weekend, I may or may not have been in hibernation mode. I love snuggling by a fire & drinking hot chocolate. Or, walking to our favorite pizza place & drinking beer & eating wings & pizza. May or may not have done both this weekend.

Traveling the last two weeks & the hibernation effect may also have affected my posting &/or commenting.

With cold weather comes hearty food - the kind that fills you & makes you feel all cozy. Wanting a little of that goodness I decided to make a chicken stew yesterday to enjoy last night. This could probably be compared to a Brunswick Stew.

I got up in the morning & combined everything into my crockpot to let it cook for the day. This turned out great & was probably one of the easiest YUM meals I've made in a while. I knew I'd want to share this with you since it was so simple, yet hearty.

Mrs. Potts' Chicken Stew

Ingredients
  • 4 Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breasts, boiled & shredded
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce
  • 2 Baking Potatoes cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes (I used fire roasted with garlic)
  • 2 cans tomato sauce
  • 1 bag frozen baby lima beans
  • 1 bag frozen corn (I used Southwestern with peppers)
  • 2 jalapeno peppers diced

Directions
  1. Combine all ingredients into a large crock-pot.
  2. Set crock-pot to low.
  3. Walk away for 6-8 hours.
  4. Stir occasionally.
  5. Serve into large bowls.
Serving Suggestion - would be good with cornbread. So sad that Mr. Potts & I did not have any to make last night.

Oh that sounds so good! Maybe I will try making it this weekend. I love soups in the winter! My mother used to make them all the time (she still does!), but I rarely make them, I don't know why.

Yum so good. This semester, I teach late in the day so I'm stocking up on good crock pot recipes so I don't have to worry about cooking when I get home.

I hear ya on the hibernation deal. I've been struggling a ton to blog recently because I'd much rather be snuggled up watching a good movie or reading a good book.
