Easy Family Dinner Idea or Dinner Party Recipe
Stew is a wonderful and healthy family meal. It’s extra special in cooler weather. This recipe would also be an excellent one-pot dinner party entree and serves a small group well.
What is the Difference Between Stew and Soup?
Both stew and soup are dishes that contain a mixture of meat or fish and vegetables cooked in liquid.
The main difference between these two hearty meals is the amount of liquid that is used in each. Stew commonly contains less liquid than soup.
Stew combines coarse cuts of meat, fish, and slow-cooked vegetables in a minimum amount of liquid, transforming into a flavorful gravy.
Vegetables such as beans, carrots, mushrooms, onions, peppers, potatoes, and/or tomatoes are commonly used.
What to serve with Chicken and Potato Stew
When serving, stews can stand alone, but they are even more deliciously served over a carb, such as rice, mashed potatoes, polenta, or noodles.
We love to have this Chicken and Potato Stew recipe over rice or cauliflower rice or with Chinese LoMein.
Chicken and Potato Stew Recipe Variations
Play around adding or swapping out the vegetables that you love. We love celery and mushrooms, but carrots and sweet potatoes would be an interesting addition too.
Add hearty fresh herbs such as bay leaves at the beginning of your cooking.
Toss in your more delicate herbs, such as green onions or parsley, towards the end of cooking to hold up and maintain their flavor.
And now, Dave’s delicious authentic Chinese Chicken and Potato Stew recipe is here without further ado. I am so sure that you will LOVE it.Print

Dutch Oven/French Oven
We find the best container for this recipe is a Dutch oven, stockpot, or wok.
Our favorite is my Le Creuset enameled Dutch oven, sometimes referred to as a french oven. It is excellent for making soups and stews, although you can also use it for braising and frying too.
My Le Creuset Dutch Oven in the photos above is 7-1/4 quart Flame Orange.
These pots are made from heavy cast iron. They heat up smoothly and evenly, making them awesome for cooking.
What sets them apart from regular cast iron is their beautiful enameled finish. The smooth enamel is durable, less likely to stick, and easier to clean than bare cast iron.
This is a favorite kitchen tool for so many people, and I finally discovered why! I use mine all the time.
Firstly, it’s jewelry for your kitchen. I leave mine out on the stove 24/7 to add a punch of color.
Use it on your stove to simmer, sauté, boil or sear, then use it in your oven to bake or broil. Le Creuset pots are beautiful enough to use for serving too. See the Le Creuset styles.
An instant pot electric pressure cooker makes everything so fast and easy to cook!
Try potatoes, rice, bone broths, soups, or meat. It can serve double duty and substitute for many other appliances.
Today we are using it for the rice instead of our rice cooker.
A flexible silicone ladle is a must because it’s great for serving and allows you to reach every spot of your Dutch oven or pot and get every last drop.
I’m not sure why I love all of these utensils so much. When you’re cooking in a non-stick pan or pot, wooden spoons, and silicone spatulas won’t scratch or give you the nails on the chalkboard noise. That’s probably why.
They make cooking more enjoyable. Above is a gorgeous wooden utensil spoon set from OXO; find the spoon set here.
OH, and I need this highly-rated spatula set ASAP. Available in 5 colors if you are not into orange like me! Spatula set
The Best Cooking Knives
Everyone who cooks needs a good quality knife, plus a method to keep it sharp.
A sharp knife makes cooking life better. It will cut, chop, and slice so easily and quickly that you will actually enjoy the process.
Be sure to sharpen it often if you use your knife every day.
