Is Chicken Stew Good for You?
Chicken stew can be nutritious and healthy, especially when you add a variety of vegetables to the stew. Vegetables are low in calories and high in water and fiber.

Adding vegetables like carrots, celery, leeks, potatoes and green beans can help you meet the recommended amount of vegetable servings a day. Per serving, our hearty chicken stew is low in calories, high in fiber and is a good source of protein, vitamins and minerals.
