I made Apple Chicken Stew this past weekend. I did alter the recipe some. I diced a green pepper and minced two garlic cloves. I also put chicken stock in the stew to add more liquid and to tone down the sweetness. I used Honey crisp Apple cider.
Really enjoyed this recipe. I added poultry seasoning to it and added quite a lot more apple cider . I didn't have caraway seeds.
This was a nice recipe. It is not a soup, it is a stew, which is thicker. The caraway seeds add a nice flavor as does the bay leaf.
Didn't peel the apples. Used parsley instead of caraway. Filling, but not heavy.
The apple juice makes the chicken very tender, but it gives too much sweetness to the dish overall. And with so little juice, there's almost no broth. It's more like chicken and vegetables cooked in juice than a stew. I think it should have been mixed with broth before cooking. While the chicken was good, I won't make this again -- it's too sweet.
My family loves this tasty stew! I always add additional cider or apple juice so it's consistency is more like a soup.
If you can peel and cube potatoes, carrots, onion, celery, 2 lbs.of chicken and an apple in 10 mins. You are far better than me. That is the supposed prep. time. The recipe was fairly good but was a lot of work before you get it into the slow cooker.
The caraway gives it just the right touch.
This recipe was a lot of work and end result was only fair.
This was very hearty and flavorful! My husband hates vinegar and he loved the bite and slight tartness of the stew. Definitely try this stew out!
