How to Make Chicken Stew with Beans & Vegetables

  • on May 11, 2018

A Homey Meal Full of Nutrients

Vegetable Stew with Chicken is a nutritious family dish that is easy to make. The chicken thighs and the vegetables are cooked separately to maximize the preservation of their flavors and textures. They are combined at the final cooking stage with the tomato sauce and paste.

Vegetable stew with chicken duoIn addition to the chicken, it contains Beans (red or white), Zucchini, Green Pepper, Garlic and diced Tomatoes. You may add onions if desired.

Our Vegetable Stew with Chicken requires the Lebanese Vermicelli Rice on the side as they are consumed together.

I propose you gain time in the kitchen by making the rice while the stew is cooking in its last 20-minute stage.


A green salad works well siding this duo dish, if you desire adding fresh greenery to your meal. I suggest a salad of Purslane, Lettuce and onion slices, with the Lebanese healthy dressing of Lemon Juice, Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, salt and pepper.

Enjoy it! Life is Good!
