If you are a fan of comfort food, then this chicken stew is the perfect meal on a cold day. Hearty, thick, and delicious, you will love sitting down to a bowl of this stew. In India, especially in Kerala, it is usually prepared as a side dish along with Appam. Ultra tender flesh and super crispy skin smothered in a thick savory sauce with vegetables. This Chicken Stew is slow-cooked in the oven to develop deep, incredible flavors. The smell that fills the house when it’s in the oven is simply wonderful!

A stew is a combination of solid food ingredients that have been cooked in boil water and served in the resultant gravy. Ingredients in a stew include any combination of veggies such as carrots, potatoes, onions, beans, pepper, mushrooms, and tomatoes, and handmade organic masalas such as black pepper, ginger powder, garlic powder, Organic red chili powder, and ORCO’s organic chicken masala. It may include meat, mainly tougher meats suitable for slow cooking.
