Healthy And Tasty Chicken Stew Recipe


Wish to cook something tasty yet healthy? Chicken stew cooked with vegetables is perhaps the best option for you! Today I am going to share a simple recipe of chicken stew which is excellent for you, whether you are in the pink or you are affected by health conditions like diabetes, high levels of blood cholesterol or digestion problems. I have relished this amazingly delicious soup that my mom used to make, since my good old childhood days. I love this soup and I am sure you would love it too!

This chicken stew recipe is not only simple to cook but also delectable to taste. It is extremely healthy because not a drop of oil is used and the entire recipe thrives on boiling and steaming. You are free to add your own choice of vegetables like potatoes and beans. I refrain from adding potatoes in order to make it diabetic-friendly and maintain the light texture of the broth. Squash and carrots add to the nutrient value while the whole spices add a delicate Indian flavour to this chicken soup. Brown bread acts as a perfect companion to this incredibly nutritious oil-free soup. Slurp it down in the morning if you wish to start your day with a wholesome breakfast or have it late in the evening if you wish to sign off with a light supper.
