Rich Chicken Stew
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 4 up to adding the peas and parsley. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator, if necessary, and reheat; just before serving, stir in peas and parsley.
Equipment: 5- to 6-quart slow cooker (or see Simmered Stew variation, below)
For easy cleanup, try a slow-cooker liner. These heat-resistant, disposable liners fit neatly inside the insert and help prevent food from sticking to the bottom and sides of your slow cooker.
2 vegetable, 3 1/2 lean meat, 1 fat
