Slow cooker chicken stew

We have had some bitter cold days here in Ontario and it is always nice to warm up with a bowl of stew for dinner. I love a good stew but I’m not much of a red meat person to be honest and I generally only eat red meat a few times a month, I tend to go with chicken based meals.. so I thought why not try a chicken stew.. the end result was so tasty! A nice hearty meal the whole family can enjoy, I’m picky with my veggies so I only added carrots and onion in mine but feel free to add in some different vegetables like celery or peas. Makes 8- 1 cup servings at 3SP on blue, 4SP on green and just 1SP on purple.
