Clean eating doesn't have to be expensive you can make really simple meals that can have last you all week for lunch if you are a cooking for one. This is my recipe for chicken stew with whole wheat dumplings.
2 cups homemade chicken stock (Optional)
2 cups chicken stock, 4 cups if you don't make homemade stock
10 ounces chicken
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
Half bag baby carrots (16oz)
5 celery stalks
Half red onion, sliced
1/2 cup per-sliced white button mushrooms
I used a leftover baked.
Take meat all off the bones place in crockpot. Put carrots in whole, slice the red onion, rough chop celery, and per-slice mushrooms in the crockpot with chicken, cover with chicken stock turn on low cook over night or store in the refrigerator till morning, then cook.
Then you can make homemade chicken stock with the bones. Throw the skin away then place chicken bones in a pot, on the stove, cover with water, water should just be covering the bones. Put the pot on high heat till boiling. Simmer for 1 to two hours. Add this to a crockpot on low overnight.
I started this at three on a Monday I ate it at one for lunch on a Tuesday. Both the chicken stock and chicken where both left over from other meals. talk about budget cooking!!
