Chicken Leftover Stew #NotVegetarian

In case you didn’t know, I love cooking with leftovers. I love it when the fridge is crowded with the tag ends of things, and I can clean all that out AND make something delicious, all in one fell swoop ( or “in one swell foop,” as my grandpa used to say. He was a funny guy).

So the other day, I made this.

I still had a wing and most of a breast in the freezer from a chicken dinner we bought in late spring from a high school band fundraiser, so I put that into my Instant Pot with some water and cooked it with some whole celery stalks and carrots. Then I pulled the meat off the bone.

Tipper refused the scraps. He won’t eat anything except his Blue Wilderness Grain Free with Duck (not a paid endorsement).

I cut up the celery and carrots and threw in some leftover new red potatoes and green beans. I added some water, chicken bouillon, Penzeys Old World Seasoning and Penzeys Shallots.

Oh, my gosh–SO GOOD!

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies with a vegan feast.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about a fundraiser.

    You don’t know, the chicken might have been a vegetarian. That looks really good.

      Chickens are SO NOT vegetarian (by choice). Anybody who thinks chickens are vegetarian has never thrown a tomato hornworm into a chicken yard. Yeah, life in the country ain’t for the faint of heart.

    That looks exactly like my dinner from last night! Except my soup came from Progresso (Vegetable Noodle) and the chicken was leftover from my wife’s homemade chicken cheesesteaks. I added black pepper and curry and called it done.

      Yes. I must have been a weasel in a former life, ’cause I do love eating chickens. Dead and cooked ones, though, so maybe not.
