Description

My family is Acadian, and this is something I grew up eating. This is my comfort food and very easy to prepare. I could eat it every day. There are 2 ways to prepare the meat/broth. th are mentioned below, but one will add more prep time to the recipe.

This is great with dumplings, which I have also posted a basic recipe for.

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds Chicken (or Turkey) Pieces, With Bone
  • 10 cups Water
  • 2 whole Onions, Chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Flour
  • 6 whole Large Potatoes, Peeled And Cubed
  • 2 whole Carrots, Sliced And Peeled
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Summer Savory (traditional Herb- Can Use Thyme Or Some Sage)

Preparation

Preparing the chicken can be done 2 ways:

1) You can use 3 pounds of chicken, with bone in, and just simmer in the 10 cups of water for 45 minutes to an hour. Then remove the chicken pieces, (reserving the cooking water as the stew broth), let cool slightly and remove the meat from the bones, cutting to bite-sized pieces.

or

2) Roast a small chicken (or you can make a larger amount of stew using a turkey), then remove as much meat as possible, cutting to bite-sized pieces, and reserve. Then simmer the chicken bones in the 10 cups water for about an hour to make the broth.

After preparing the meat and broth with your chosen method:

Saute the onions in the butter until translucent.

Add flour and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

Put all remaining ingredients into the reserved broth, including meat, and simmer for another 30 minutes. Adjusting seasonings to taste.

If preparing dumplings, add them in the last 10 minutes that the stew is simmering.
