When I was on my journey to eat healthy and lose weight, this stew helped me a lot. Chicken and vegetable Stew is healthy, light, filling, and delicious.
I turned this stew to Mexican, Indian, and Italian by just changing the spices used.
Have it with bread, couscous, or rice but keep the calories in mind.
I’m sharing the Indian version today, I’ve used chicken breast, but I promise if you follow my cooking method the chicken breast will stay tender.
If you wish to use chicken thighs keep it to 250gm, and you can by all means skip the chicken and add more vegetables if you wish.
