This Slow Cooker Garlic Parmesan Chicken Stew is bound to be your new favorite winter comfort food! It's hearty, creamy, cheesy and loaded with vegetables! The crockpot makes it an easy weeknight meal.
3boneless skinless chicken breastscut into 1" pieces
½medium onionfinely chopped
3large carrotsthinly sliced
2cupschicken or vegetable broth
⅓cupshredded Parmesan cheese
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 30-60 minutes or until thickened slightly.
Serve immediately with crusty bread for dipping (the best way!).
*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.
