How To Make quick and easy chicken stew

  • 1
    In a large pan or deep 12 inch skillet, melt the butter over medium high heat. Add onion and stir until onion is done.
  • 2
    Add flour, salt, and pepper and stir until mixture is bubbly, then remove from heat.
  • 3
    Add milk, cream, and chicken broth. Return to heat, still medium high, and stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil. Boil and stir for one minute.
  • 4
    Add cooked chicken and cooked peas and carrots. Sometimes I add a little parsley for color. You can add more salt and pepper after for taste to your liking.

    *NOTE* I like to use milk and cream in this recipe as the cream gives it a more rich flavor. You can use just milk, or milk and half and half if you'd prefer.
