Slow Cooker Chicken Stew

Slow Cooker Chicken Stew

Slow cookers are known for making delicious food without much effort, and that’s exactly what this recipe is. Aside from browning the chicken, you just need to add everything to a crockpot and then you can sit back and relax while it does the work.


• 2 tablespoons olive oil

• 1 1/2 pounds chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces

• 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

• 1 teaspoon dried thyme

• 1 teaspoon dried rosemary

• 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to season

• 6 cloves garlic, minced

• 1 onion, diced

• 3 carrots, peeled and sliced

• 2 large potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (1 pound)

• 3 cups chicken broth

• 1 bay leaf

• 1/2 cup milk

• 1 cup green peas, frozen

• Black pepper, to season


• Place chicken on a cutting board, dice into 1-inch pieces, and season generously with salt and pepper.

• In a large skillet, warm the olive oil, add the chicken, and cook for 4-5 minutes until browned on all sides. You don’t need to cook the chicken all the way through, simply sear it in the juices before adding it to the slow cooker. Note: If the slow cooker has a removable stovetop-safe pot, you can place it directly on the stovetop top and cook the chicken directly in the removable pot and then return it to the slow-cooker base.

• Once the chicken is seared, place it in the slow cooker, add flour, thyme, rosemary, and salt, and stir until the chicken is well coated in the flour and herbs.

• Add the garlic, onion, carrots, and potatoes to the slow cooker, and stir to combine. Then pour in the broth and add the bay leaf.

• Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.

• Once cooked, add the frozen peas and milk, stir to combine, and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes on high until the peas are warmed through. At this point, you can also adjust the thickness of the stew by adding a bit more flour if it’s too thin or a splash of chicken broth if it’s too thick.

• Once complete, taste the stew and adjust the salt and pepper as needed before serving.

• The stew can be served immediately, and leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or frozen for up to 3 months.
