Garden Harvest Chicken Stew

3 -4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
6 - medium regular or Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 - large carrots, peeled and sliced thin
1 - cup fresh or frozen green beans
1 - zucchini squash, cut
1/2 - medium onion, chopped
3 - cups chicken broth
1 - chicken bouillon cube
1 - 6 oz can tomato paste
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 - cup cold water
3 - tablespoons cornstarch
2 - tablespoons olive oil

Cut the chicken into bite size pieces. In a large skillet add the olive oil. Add the chicken and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Saute the chicken until lightly browned. Set aside when done.

In a large slow cooker, combine the rest of the ingredients except for the zucchini, cold water and cornstarch. Mix well and cook on low for 6-7 hours (or high for 4 hours). The last two hours of cooking add the zucchini.

When all the vegetables are all soft, in a separate bowl mix together the cold water and cornstarch, stirring until smooth. Stir into the stew and cook for an additional 20 minutes or until the sauce thickens.

Judy approximately how much would the chicken breasts weigh? - here that would be 750g-1kg so sounds like a lot of chicken for the amount of liquid

1kg=2.2 lbs

sounds nice

Shrimp Bisque


A broth made from shrimp shells, wine and aromatic vegetables makes a richly flavored base for this bisque. A dollop of reduced-fat sour cream is all you need for a luxurious finish.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.

INGREDIENTS:

12 ounces shrimp (30-40 per pound) shell-on
1 onion chopped, divided
1 carrot peeled and sliced
1 stalk celery (with leaves) sliced
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns
1 bay leaf
3 cups water
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 ounces mushrooms wiped clean and sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup chopped scallions
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
11/2 cups low-fat milk
1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 cup dry sherry
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Dash of hot sauce



DIRECTIONS:

Peel and devein shrimp, reserving the shells. Cut the shrimp into 3/4-inch pieces; cover and refrigerate.


Combine the shrimp shells with about half the onion, all the carrot, celery, wine, peppercorns and bay leaf in a large heavy saucepan. Add water and simmer over low heat for about 30 minutes. Strain through a sieve, pressing on the solids to extract all the juices; discard the solids. Measure the shrimp stock and add water, if necessary, to make 1 1/2 cups.


Heat oil in the same pan over medium heat. Add mushrooms, bell pepper, scallions, parsley and the remaining onion. Cook, stirring, until the mushrooms are soft, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with flour and cook, stirring constantly, until it starts to turn golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Slowly stir in milk and the shrimp stock. Cook, stirring to loosen any flour sticking to the bottom of the pot, until the soup returns to a simmer and thickens, about 5 minutes. Add the reserved shrimp and cook until they turn opaque in the center, about 2 minutes more. Add sour cream, sherry and lemon juice; stir over low heat until heated through&#8212;do not let it come to a boil. Taste and adjust seasonings with salt, pepper and hot sauce.

I like the look of the Beef and Beer Chili Carey, does the beer taste cook out of it, am not a lover of beer and is the yellow cornmeal a thickening agent, we only have cornstarch here as far as I know?

If you do not use dry beans, your beans will cook to nothing if you try and make them this way since it has to cook for hours.

Colombian Chicken Soup Recipe




INGREDIENTS

Soup Ingredients:
  • 3 pounds chicken thighs and legs, skin removed, rinsed well
  • 1 large white or yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 pound russet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt
  • 1 1/2 quarts water
  • 1 quart chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 pounds small potatoes, of various colors
  • 2 ears of fresh corn, cut crosswise into 1-2 inch roundsAji Ingredients:
    • 4 scallions (white and light green parts only)
    • 2 Roma or other plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
    • 2 fresh Scotch bonnet or Habanero chiles or 2 fresh hot red chiles, stems and seeds removed (wear gloves, do NOT touch your eyes!)
    • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
    • 3 Tbsp lemon or lime juice
    • 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt
    • Garnish: capers, sour cream, avocados, cilantro
METHOD

1 Put the chicken, diced russet potatoes, chopped onion and garlic in a large (at least 8 quart) stock pot and add 1 1/2 quarts of water and the quart of chicken stock. Bring to a boil over high heat and then reduce the heat to a vigorous simmer. Add the cumin, bay leaves and salt to taste. Simmer this until the meat wants to fall of the bones of the chicken — anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour, 15 minutes.
2 When the chicken is ready, remove it and the bay leaves from the soup and set in a large bowl. If you are going to puree the soup base with an immersion blender or by putting the soup into a regular blender in batches, do so now.
3 Pour the pureed soup base back into the pot and bring to a very gentle simmer. Add the second batch of potatoes and cook until tender, about 20-40 minutes, depending on size.
4 While the potatoes are cooking, shred the meat off the chicken bones and set aside. Make the salsa by pulsing all the ingredients in a food processor until they're finely minced. Transfer to a serving bowl.
5 Drop the pieces of corn on the cob into the simmering soup and cook for 5 minutes.
6 Serve the soup with the salsa, capers, sliced avocados, sour cream, and cilantro in separate bowls. Let people add garnishes to their own servings.
Yield: Serves 10 to 12.
