Anybody got a good chicken stew recipe? Had a taste for some for a coupla weeks now, can't find a good recipe and can't remember/never knew how my mother made it. I do remember she used potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, and peas.

Both sound great. What do you use for spices? Thyme, sage, pepper, salt, and what?

Anybody remember the Frugal Gourmet? He did a show on cooking chicken that I happened to catch. One method: Take a 3-4 pound stewing hen. Put it in a big pot. Cover with water. Take the hen out and bring the water to a boil. Put the hen back in. Bring water to a rolling boil. Turn off the heat. Cover the pot. Do Not touch for 3 hours. At the end of 3 hours the chicken will be falling-off-the-bone cooked. I've used that a few times and it works as long as you don't open the pot for the whole 3 hours.

I use my crock-pot ALOT! LOL

Here's what I do:
One evening put a whole chicken in the crock pot with water. Turn on high for 2-3 hrs then on low till morning. In the morning the chicken will have fallen off the bones. Pick out the bones and skin. I then add carrots, celery, onion, and spices and allow to simmer on low all day. Just before supper I either make biscuits or turn the crock-pot back on high and mix up a batch of cheese dumplings to plop on top.

You can add rice when you add the veggies too!

Works well for me with all that I have to get done during the day :0)

MMMMMMM......sounds like a supper that I'll serve this week. Thanks for the reminder! :0)

my favorite way is after the chicken is cooked and all the meat has been taken out and all there is left is broth, I put it in fridge overnight so the grease will harden on top. Meantime, I have taken 3 egg yolks and 1 whole egg and added about 2 or so cups of flour and rolled out a big counter of noodles. Let them set awhile and then rollup and slice . Let them set on counter till morning and they will be dry. Add them to skimmed broth and it is the best eating there is. Next day they are even better

That's how my mom used to make homemade noodles! Boy were they the best! Gotta call mom and see if she's up to making a batch. Thanks for the yummy memories :0)

i'd buy a chicken, plop it in a kettle, cover with water & throw in an onion & boil it for 45 minutes, then cool and bone the thing and put the meat back in & add veggies and enough water to cover them and simmer for 1/2 hour. then stir up a batch of dumplings to soak up the extra juices. :)
