Crock Pot Chicken Stew
7 SmartPoints Per Serving
1. Combine mushrooms, shallots, oil and 1/4 cup water in a 5- to 6-quart Dutch-Oven. Cover and cook over high
heat, stirring often, until mushrooms are juicy, 3 to 4 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring often, until the
mushrooms are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Add broth, carrots, thyme and bay leaves; bring to a boil.
2. Place chicken in a 5- to 6-quart crockpot and lay lemon slices on top. Turn heat to high. Carefully pour in the
vegetable mixture. Cover and cook until the chicken is very tender, 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
3. With a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken and vegetables to a bowl; discard bay leaves and lemon slices.
Skim fat and pour the juices into a large saucepan; add lemon zest. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until
reduced to 2 cups, 15 to 20 minutes.
4. Mix cornstarch with remaining 1/4 cup water in a small bowl. Add to the pan and cook, stirring, until slightly
thickened. Add cream and lemon juice; stir until boiling. Return the chicken and vegetables to the sauce and
heat through. Season with salt and pepper. Just before serving, stir in peas and parsley.
