This time of year nothing says Comfort Food more than a hearty delicious stew and my deconstructed chicken stew is comfort food at its best.
While I did cut down drastically the amount of gravy that normally would come with a stew, being a southern boy I decided to bread and pan fry my chicken for the added flavor. But if you’d like to make this even more healthy and lose the extra calories from frying just roast or grill your chicken.
By roasting the vegetables and not subjecting them to the boiling and simmering in the gravy, they had a wonderful fresh flavor, each vegetable keeping its identity. The coating on the chicken added another element to the dish, with the final touch of that creamy mushroom chicken gravy taking this dish into the Comfort Food Hall of Fame!
