Stewy Chicken

It’s been ages since I posted a recipe. My friend, Tami, sent me this. I made it over Memorial Day weekend and I was a hero, they practically threw me a ticker-tape parade after dinner. I added a bunch of grated zucchini at the end. It was awesome.

Recipe: Stewy Chicken


  • 1 whole chicken or 8 skinless boneless thighs
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp chopped mint leaves
  • 2 Tbsp salt
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 teasp dried oregano
  • 1 teasp minced jalapeno pepper
  • 1 teasp lime zest
  • 1/4 c lime juice


  1. Throw the whole deal in a pot and let it cook for a long time on low heat — two + hours. Serve with rice or in tacos or on salad.

    I’m so glad! I’m making this tonight! I puree everything but the chicken in the food pro or blender first, for a smooth stewing liquid. It’s so good with my secret crack sauce, which is not a secret any longer…

    in food processor or blender puree
    mayonaise (I use an eggless grapeseed oil version)
    1-3 chipotles in adobo
    a bunch of smoked paprika
    a few cloves of garlic
    some salted lemon if you’re lucky enough to have a jar
