Default Chicken stew

I got creative this weekend. Saturday night I went down to the freezer and came up with a few packages of chicken thighs I bought on sale earlier this year. Put them in the pressure cooker to thaw and cook them (50 minutes after the control jiggles, let cool normally for 5-10 minutes more), then popped them in the fridge with the broth (about a quart) in another container. After they'd cooled I stripped the meat off, stripped out the fat, skin, bones, and inedibles, cut up the meat and stuck it back in the fridge.

Sunday morning before church, I got out the crock pot. Threw in the chicken meat and broth (minus all the fat that had floated to the top and thickened for easy removal) and some cans of stuff, such as

1 small can green chilies
1 can corn with green and red peppers
1 can yellow hominy
1 can white hominy
1 can black beans
1 can dark red kidney beans
1 8-ounce jar of medium salsa (or mild, or not, as you choose)
1 pound baby carrots
1 onion, chunked
a dash of Tabasco
fresh ground pepper

I let that cook for about 8 hours, then thickened it with mashed potato flakes (works a whole lot better than using corn starch or flour!) into a thick stew. Peanut's nutritionist said today it's got lots of fiber, and it also is thick with protein. I put 8 containers of it in the freezer for quick use later. Note: this recipe fills a 6 quart crock pot.

Hint - to those looking at surgery soon - filling your freezer with stuff like this can really help when they let you start eating again. It doesn't take much to thaw this and then puree a portion of it. All the taste is still there, even if it has the consistency of mush!

Enjoy!

Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

Okay leave out the chilies and tobasco and I'm there. Thanks for the new recipe, I just happen to have some left over chicken in the fridge and homade stock in the freezer. I think I know what will be for supper tomorrow night.

Unlike baking, which involves chemical reactions and is pretty picky, cooking is infinitely flexible! You can leave things out, add other things, and in general customize any recipe to what's in the fridge. Sometimes when I have a few base ingredients, I do an online search for recipes and see what people are mixing together, then adapt them to make an original concoction. Turns out decent more often than not!

For this recipe, I was at the store and I looked at a recipe on the side of a cooked chicken breast can. They wouldn't recognize it, but it gave me a few ideas as a point of departure. Cooking is creativity with a purpose and a reward!

My natural humility prevents me from making such a claim, but I'd hate to call you a liar!!
