Recipe by Chef mariajane

Carrots, parsnips and chicken simmer in a sauce of apple cider and chicken broth, making a delicious and homey stew - perfect for a chilly fall evening. Simple boiled potatoes, egg noodles, or rice would be perfect for catching the stew's extra sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oven to 400°F
  2. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the oil over moderately high heat. Season the chicken thighs and drumsticks with 1/4 teaspoon fo the salt and the pepper. Cook the chicken until browned, turning, about 8 minutes in all. Remove. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat from the pot.
  3. Reduce the heat to moderate and stir the flour. Whisk in the cider and the broth and bring to a simmer, scraping the bottom of the pot to dislodge any browned bits. Add the onion, parsnips, carrots, thyme and the remaining 1/2 teaspoons of the salt. Simmer, partially covered, for 10 minutes.
  4. Return the chicken to the pot. Bring the stew back to a simmer, cover, and put in the preheated oven until the chicken is done and the vegetable are tender, about 15 minutes.
