This simple, comforting Winter Chicken & Rice Stew is the perfect recipe for batch-cooking, enjoying for lunch, or an easy weeknight dinner.

I’ve expressed many times my love for soups and stews. They’re a go-to during the winter because they’re not only warm and comforting, but if you just throw a few ingredients into a pot or slow-cooker, they are as easy as can be to make.

I love playing around with different ingredients and flavour combinations and I definitely have a few favourite stew recipes up my sleeve, but my newest fave is this comforting Winter Chicken & Rice Stew, made with only a small handful of wholesome ingredients. This one need not take any more than an hour or so to cook. The perfect weeknight meal or weekend dinner that makes a great leftover lunch.

How to Make Winter Chicken & Rice Stew

To make this stew, you’ll need:

  • chicken breast
  • carrots
  • kale
  • green beans
  • rice
  • garlic
  • basil and parsley

I like to keep the steps for this recipe simple. Toss everything into a pot, and let simmer for about 40-45 minutes. Once it’s cooked and rice has absorbed a lot of the water, shred the chicken apart with two forks and stir.
