Warm & Cozy Creamy Chicken Stew (Dairy-Free)
This creamy chicken stew is so tasty. It's a dish that's super popular in Japan, especially with kids, but most people start with a store-bought roux that has MSG and all sorts of chemicals. This is home-made, but simple! It makes great left-overs s we always make a double-batch!

Ingredients
  1. 3 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
  2. 3 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  3. Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  4. 4 cups chicken stock preferably homemade (if you use store-bought stock, you might need to add additional all-natural bouillon to boost the chicken flavor)
  5. 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (we use dairy-free "Earth Balance" butter alternative)
  6. 1 cup chopped yellow onions
  7. 1/2 cup flour
  8. 2 cups medium-diced carrots (4 carrots)
  9. 1 cup frozen peas
  10. 1 cup cubed potato
  11. 1 cup frozen small whole onions (pearl onions)
  12. Parsley for garnish
  13. Cooked brown rice for serving
Instructions
  1. Heat the chicken stock in a pot.
  2. In a separate large pot or Dutch oven, melt the butter and saute the onions over medium-low heat for 10 to 15 minutes, until translucent.
  3. Add the flour and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the hot chicken stock to the sauce. Simmer over low heat for 1 more minute, stirring, until thick.
  5. Add the cubed chicken, potatoes, carrots, and onions until tender, mixing occasionally.
  6. Add the peas, mix well, and heat through.
  7. Salt and pepper to taste. If you use store-bought chicken broth, this is where you might find you want to add a little all-natural chicken bouillon to boost flavor.
  8. Ladle the cream stew over hot brown rice, sprinkle with parsley, and serve.
  9. If you'd like, you can let it cool and refrigerate until the next day, when the flavors will really meld and become even more delicious.
