Hearty Chicken StewTender chunks of chicken and hearty vegetables in a rich savory sauce will make your family smile!

6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into bite-size chunks
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup sliced carrots
2 cups peeled, cubed all-purpose potatoes
2 (14 ounces each) cans chicken broth
2 cups water
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/2 teaspoon curry powder

In a Dutch oven, brown chicken in oil; transfer to dish and set aside. Add the onion and celery to drippings in Dutch oven and sauté until tender, about 4 minutes. Return chicken to Dutch oven; stir in the carrots and potatoes.

In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; pour into the Dutch oven. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil, over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until the chicken is done and the vegetables are tender. Makes 6 generous servings.

I like to serve this stew with a slice of hot corn bread or fluffy buttermilk biscuits.
