"I'm the mother of four boys who are definitely carnivores! I usually like to make a lot of easy prep slow simmer meals. Like stews, sauces, pot roasts etc. These things work for me cause the prep is quick and cook time is usually a no brainer...check every now and then.....and tada...dinner!!!!"

  1. Heat oil in a large pot or Dutch oven, over medium-high heat. Briefly brown chicken pieces in batches. When all of the pieces have been browned, return them all to the pot and cover with a layer of sliced onions, and then potatoes. Season with pepper and sprinkle with parsley. Pour the chicken broth over all.
  2. Cover and simmer on low heat for 45 minutes, pushing potatoes down into the liquid occasionally. When potatoes are tender but not mushy, add frozen peas and simmer for 5 more minutes.

I did not care for this.

I thought this dish was great! Easy to make & the chicken was not dry!!

The meat turned out very dry for being in broth and the peas turned out very mushy even though I followed the recipe exactly. Ok for a one timer, but wouldn't fix again.

I think this recipe has potential. I cut it in half and used three leg quarters rather than a whole chicken because that's what I had. To the broth, I added 1 celery stick cut into big chunks so I could remove it easily, salt, 2 crushed cloves garlic, 10 peppercorns, a bay leaf, some dried thyme, and the juice of one lemon. I omitted the peas and onions because I had none. At the end of cooking, I strained the broth and thickened it to use as gravy. As is, I have to give it four stars because it needed a little something extra, but with the added ingredients it's a 5. Many thanks to Cindy to providing this recipe!

This a delicious basic recipe. My family does not care for peas, so I added green beans. In this economy recipes like this go far.
