|PB&J Chicken Stew|
This is possible one of the saddest photos every posted here! But when we make this again (and we will, it really is good, UPDATE, we have made this again, but the photo-op did not take place!), I hope to update the photo part of the post with a picture that is befitting this delicious dinner! This is a great recipe, it is quick, uses ingredients you most likely have on hand and tastes wonderful.
PS, this is a very creative way to use up that last little bit of jelly that for some reason your family might think should not be eaten, but instead, that jar now becomes a permanent shrine in your refrigerator to all jelly enjoyed in previous times.......
PB&J Chicken Stew
adapted from: Our Krazy Kitchen
8 chicken thighs, skinned, boned and cut into chunks
1 onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 carrots, peeled and minced
2 ribs celery, minced
1 c sliced mushrooms
1 T tomato paste OR 2 T finely minced dried tomato

2 - 3 T jelly (we used grape)
S&P to taste
1-2 T cornstarch
1/4 c water
Place chicken in bottom of slow cooker. Add diced vegetables. Combine the broth, peanut butter, and jelly, heat to boiling. Pour over chicken and vegetables. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook on high, 2 1/2 - 3 hours, the vegetables should be cooked, but not mushy.
Combine cornstarch and water until smooth and lump free. Pour into chicken mixture, stir well. Continue cooking on high, 1 hour.
You may also cook on low for 5-7 hours.
Serve over mashed potatoes OR our favorite brown rice method.
Our Favorite Brown Rice:
by the seat of our pants!
Cook 1 cup brown rice, plus 2 coarsely grated carrots according to package directions or using a preferred method.
When rice is cooked, stir in 1 cup frozen peas. Let rest covered, 5 minutes.
Next stir in one can of very well drained corn.
