This easy chicken stew recipe is simple to make and super comforting! It'll stick to your ribs and keep you warm all winter long.
Add the oil, butter, onion, celery, carrots, and garlic to a large soup pot. Sauté over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes.
Stir in the flour and let it cook for about a minute.
Stir in the chicken broth, cream, and Italian seasoning, followed by the mushrooms, potatoes, and chicken.
Increase the heat to high and bring the stew to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat and simmer (lid off) for 25 minutes (veggies will be tender and liquid will have thickened a bit).
Take the chicken out and cut it up/shred it. Add it back in, then season the stew with salt & pepper to taste.
