There are few things as comforting as a warm bowl of chicken stew, fresh out of the crock pot. I truly could have, and wanted to, eat this entire thing. But, I had to share with my husband darnit.

My husband denies the fact that he’s a picky eater, but take it from me, if he’s not eating a sandwich or a buffalo chicken pizza, he puts his picky pants on. So even though this stew is amazing, I wouldn’t bet my life on the fact that he would agree. So imagine my surprise when I literally turned my back for five seconds, and this is what the plate looked like when I turned back around. (Yes, I had to take a picture, this was a phenomenon.)

There’s just one thing you need to know about this recipe:

Adding dairy to the crock pot:

Dairy products have a tendency to curdle in certain situations, like if cold dairy is added to a hot pot for example. So I recommend to temper the dairy mixture before adding it to the crock pot. I also recommend cooking this on low as opposed to high, and finally, I recommend using whole milk as the extra fat content can prevent it from curdling.

Looking for a new crock pot?

If you’re in the market for a new Crock Pot, I just bought myself this one. Not only does it have a self-timer which will switch it to warm for you after a certain amount of time, but you can put the pot on the stove, which totally comes in handy when I make gravy from my Crock Pot Mississippi Pot Roast.
