Slow cooker chicken stew

March 1, 2020

We have had some bitter cold days here in Ontario and it is always nice to warm up with a bowl of stew for dinner. I love a good stew but I’m not much of a red meat person to be honest and I generally only eat red meat a few times a month, I tend to go with chicken based meals.. so I thought why not try a chicken stew.. the end result was so tasty! A nice hearty meal the whole family can enjoy, I’m picky with my veggies so I only added carrots and onion in mine but feel free to add in some different vegetables like celery or peas. Makes 8- 1 cup servings at 3SP on blue, 4SP on green and just 1SP on purple.

Instructions
  1. Turn slow cooker on to low or high depending on how long you want to cook the stew for, high- 4 hours, low- 6-8 hours.

  3. In a bowl or large measuring cup mix together the soup, broth, milk, sour cream and ranch seasoning, stir well and add to the slow cooker.

    This was amazing! We had it last night. I only had low fat sour cream and I added frozen peas so I did alter the points to fit it but still was only 5 pts on my green plan! So delicious!

    Has anyone tried this in a pressure cooker? Was wondering how long and at what setting (soup?) Thank you

        I’ve made this a couple times in my instant pot! I read when you switch slow cooker to instant pot leave the dairy and cream soups out during cooking because they will burn in the pressure cooking. I put everything in the instant pot except the milk, sour cream, and cream of chicken soup. I set it for 30 minutes ( this was a total guess so maybe less time would work great) and do quick release after it cooks ( because I am impatient). Then I add in the ingredients I left out and have served it right away and tried leaving it on slow cooker function for 20-30 minutes but either way has tasted the same. I am sure you could play around with the time but hopefully this gives you a starting point. It has been amazing every time!

    I just have the hidden valley ranch salad dressing and seasoning mix. Do you think this would work? And how much should I add? Thank you

      Yes it will work, might alter the points, and the same amount as recipe calls for

    Just to be clear: 28 grams of the Hidden Valley Mix? 14 packets seems like a LOT of ranch mix, I couldn’t find anything larger than a .8 gm package. What am I missing?

    Is there anything I can use to substitute the canned soup

    • Drizzle

      HI Heather, the soup helps with the overall creaminess of the stew plus the flavor, perhaps another kind of soup?

    Made this yesterday and it is so so yummy, will be a new dish for the winter months that are ahead here in Michigan. Everyone loved it. I added a little bit more garlic just because we are garlic lovers in our house. Started WW in March and am so glad I found you, all your recipes sound so good, can’t wait to try more of them! Thank you for what you do, points and all 🙂 Have a great day!! 🙂 🙂
