Cabbage, Potato and Chicken Stew

I don't see the cabbage but I know, I put it in.
I am not a big fan of stews but with chicken, this one took on a whole different look and taste.  It was much lighter than the beef stews, I have made and I liked each of the ingredients.  My preference for chicken and turkey over beef has come about in the past few years and with our affection for vegetables.

I found this recipe of COOKstr. It was meant for a pressure cooker but I chose to make it in a pot.  It did not seem it would take that long.


1 medium-size onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 medium-size carrots, sliced

1 large parsnip, sliced

½ small head green cabbage, shredded
4 medium-size potatoes
1 can (14½ ounces) stewed tomatoes
2 cups water
3 chicken cutlets, cut into small pieces (about an inch square)
¼ cup fresh dill or parsley leaves (optional)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper


Heat oil in large pot. Add the onion and stir it around until it is coated with the oil. Reduce the heat to low and sauté gently, stirring every now and then, until softened, 5 to 10 minutes.

Scrub and quarter the potatoes. Add all the vegetables to the pot along with the stewed tomatoes and water. Bring the liquid to a simmer over high heat.

Add the pieces of chicken to the pot. Cover and cook for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile mince or, easier yet, finely snip the dill, if using, with scissors.

Add the lemon juice and dill to the pot, stir, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Eat and enjoy.
