30 Minute Healthy Chicken Stew for any day of the week. As we are keeping everything clean and healthy this month I am adding one of my favourite chicken recipes.

Loads of veggies and tender chicken cooked in a deliciously spiced sauce. This recipe is undoubtedly my all-time favourite when following a clean diet.

The stew is warm and cozy and super easy, only 30 minutes to make including prep time.

In this chicken stew recipe, the veggies are cooked al-dente keeping most of the nutrients and yes the veggies are a little different from the typical chicken stew, but who isn’t ready for a little change in flavour I know I am.

I used veggies like Napa cabbage, bell peppers, carrots, zucchini and snow peas all of which cook very quickly. For seasoning, I added thyme and bay leaf making this healthy chicken stew explosively delicious.

Serve as is or with our delicious. gluten-free quinoa garlic cheese flatbread
