Sorry for the late post guys! Between moving and just general life craziness it’s been difficult to find the time. This chicken stew is great though. It takes a fraction of the time of traditional beef stew and it is a little bit lighter as well. The bacon and sage give it some of the traditional richness and flavor.
I love this simple celadon plate I picked up from Bunny McBride right before I left Iowa; the celadon really sets off whatever you place on it. It is a bit difficult to find his pieces because he doesn’t have a large online presence. You can check or contact AKAR if you were looking to buy or if you we looking to check out a few more of his pieces click here.
1 tsp garlic oil
1 chicken breast diced
2 slices of bacon, sliced
4 medium carrots sliced

1/4 tsp sage
1/2c red wine
fresh cracked pepper and salt to taste
1 and 1/2c water or chicken broth
1 tbsp cornstarch
rice to serve with (about 1c dry)
- Heat oil on med-high and brown the chicken. Add in bacon and carrots and cook until bacon is cooked.
