Welcome to my blog! I have been intrigued by the idea of a blog for a while now. When I was a girl I always wanted to keep a diary. But, I would get one and keep up with it for a week or two. Hopefully I'll do better with this! This blog probably won't be especially exciting, but if you want to hear about what's going on at our house then just read on!

Kaycee's Chicken Stew

Well, I've had several people ask me for the "recipe" for my chicken stew. So, I'm finally getting around to typing it up. I don't really have a recipe, so I'll just tell you how I made it last time.

You will need:

  • One small, whole chicken (sometimes I roast one myself and sometimes I cheat and get a rotisserie chicken already cooked)

  • One 28 oz can of diced tomatoes

  • One 14.5 oz can of Italian style diced tomatoes

  • 2 bags of frozen Kroger 12 oz vegetable soup mix - this includes carrots, potatoes, corn, green beans, lima beans, okra, green peas, celery and onions

  • salt and pepper

If your chicken is uncooked, roast in the oven @350 degrees, breast side up for 20 minutes per pound. Then, I simply shred my chicken, and put it in the rest of the ingredients (don't drain the tomatoes). If you have a larger chicken, you will need another bag of vegetables and one or two more cans of tomatoes. Just depends on how much chicken you have. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for at least an hour (two or three is better). Oh, and you'll need to add some water.

Make sure you use the italian flavored tomatoes - that's what makes it so good! :)

See?! Easy peasy and super healthy!
