Ingredients

  • 1 lb Little Potatoes I used Chilean Splash, halved or quartered if large
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 stalk celery chopped
  • 1/2 medium onion finely chopped
  • 3-4 large carrots thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2/3 cup cream or milk
  • 4 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Add potatoes, chicken, celery, onion, carrots, garlic, salt, parsley, thyme, pepper, and broth to a 4-6 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours or until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender (this could take up to 6 hours depending on the temperature of your slow cooker -- cutting them smaller will speed up cooking time).
  • Set slow cooker to high. Stir together cream and corn starch and stir into slow cooker, along with Parmesan cheese. Cover and cook another 30 minutes or until thickened.
  • Serve immediately with crusty bread for dipping (the best way!).

Notes

*I have cooked this stew on the stove top and it works just as well! If you're in a hurry, simmer everything except cream, corn starch and Parmesan in a large pot until potatoes are tender. Combine cream and corn starch and stir into the pot with the Parmesan, continue cooking until thickened.
