Easy Chicken Breast Stew With Onions and Carrots

"This is our weekly/by weekly recipe and it's so simple and delicious. I never even thought of posting it, but my son insisted on doing so. This recipe is very old. My granmother, my mother made it the same way for years. You can easily make this with cut up chicken, beef or pork, I did that many times before, just cook it longer and add potatoes 0.5 hour before the end, or until done."

  1. How much onion?


  1. this was really good.the chicken came out outstanding,the ketchup was a little dif.but i liked it over all
  2. I’ve made this so many times! Made a few tweaks but otherwise one of my favorite comfort foods! I serve it with white rice. Thank you for sharing!
  3. hi in recipe it says grated carrots, but on picture the carrots are sliced
  4. I made this without cream or parsley, and it was still a hit! (if not adding cream, add a bit of flour and water paste to the stew to thicken it in the last 15 minutes of cooking, it gives it a thicker texture, as opposed to a watery consistency). I was told it was tasty!


My cooking comes frome the long line of chefs in the family. Both of my parents are excellent cooks, as well as many members of my family. I never follow the recipe, unless it's baking. I created many many recipes that my friends enjoy and often ask when I'll open my own restaurant... well...some day.... Most of my recipes are healthy. We love fish, vegetables and fruits.
