Creamy and wonderful, this is a recipe I came up with years ago. This is one staple I make when it is
cooler/cold outside, and comfort food is a must.
Simple ingredients and preparation makes this an easy way to curl up to the fire, honker down, and just enjoy. :)

How to Make Chicken stove top comfort stew

Step-by-Step

  1. Fill pot with water enough to cover the chicken breasts.
    Add the chicken bullion cube and boil until the chicken is tender and done.
    Save the water for later, and take chicken breasts out with a slotted spoon to cool.
    Chop the chicken into bite size pieces when cool enough to handle.
  2. From the reserved broth, drain all but 3/4 cups from the pot.
    Add the celery,onion,carrot,broccoli and basil. Bring to a boil, and reduce the heat to a simmer and cover. Simmer for 5-7 minutes, until the vegetables are tender/crisp.
  3. Stir in the sour cream and mushroom soup.
    Add the chicken pieces and cheddar cheese.
    Cook over low flame just until the cheese melts.
  4. Enjoy with noodles of your choice, or rice or puff pastry, or any way you prefer! :)
