I love old fashioned Sunday dinner.
It was something I grew up with and it’s a traditional I still try to carry on.
Not every Sunday.
But as often as I can.
This week I made a pot of chicken stew with potatoes and carrots.
It was a simple and easy one-pot meal.
Like all of the other recipes featured on this blog, it is made without genetically modified ingredients.
Just simple things.
Organic chicken, potatoes and carrots. Just make sure you use USDA Certified Organic potatoes, as some GMO potato varieties have been introduced in the United States.
These potatoes aren’t marked as genetically modified. But you may see the words “resistant to bruising” on the label.
If you’re trying to avoid GMO’s, the best course of action is to buy organic potatoes. (Your body won’t miss the pesticides either.)

There’s nothing I love to make more than a delicious one-pot dinner.
You put the ingredients in, set it and forget it.
Until it’s ready.
Afterwards, there is just one pot to clean.
This dish took just two hours in my VitaClay slow cooker.
This is the only kind of slow cooker I use. I’ve owned it for years and I like it so much that I decided NOT to jump onto the InstantPot craze.
Meat in a VitaClay slow cooker comes out so tender. I can see why clay pots have been used for ages in Asia. They do a great job with stews, meats and meat based sauces.
I have no plans to buy one of these fussy pressure cookers because I’m more than happy with my VitaClay slow cooker, which you can see below.
VitaClay Chef Chicken Stew Recipe
The beauty of this chicken stew recipe is that it’s simple, filling and delicious.
You can serve it to company. (I have and I will again.)
The spices are simply. Just a little bit of wine and a small amount of thyme. Both of these ingredients turn a very simple dish into something elegant.
Right now it’s the end of summer where I live.
The nights are getting cool and it’s fun to cook. It’s the time of year when you want to eat something hearty.
This is a perfect fall/winter dish. But, really, you could serve it all year.
One of the beautiful things about the VitaClay Chef slow cooker is that you can cook and entire meal. Without turning your oven on and heating up the kitchen.
The cooker is also totally non toxic. The clay pot contains no lead and your food does not come in contact with aluminum or silicone. (The jury is still out on whether heated silicone is toxic.)
Slow Cooker Chicken Stew Recipe
The VitaClay Chef comes in two sizes, 6 cup and 8 cup. I own the 8 cup slow cooker and this is the size I recommend, unless you’re going to be doing a lot of cooking for one.
If you own the more popular Instant Pot, you could still use the spices and ingredients in this recipe. But you would have to adjust cooking times. (However, I’m no help here, since I don’t even know how to use an Instant Pot.)
- 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 cups of chopped carrots
- 7 medium potatoes peeled and chopped
- 3/4 cups of white wine (Chablis works well)
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon of thyme powder
- Salt to taste
- Put rinsed chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker
- Add the chopped carrots
- Add the potatoes
- Gently mix ingredients
- Add the wine
- Add the olive oil
- Add pepper and thyme
- Cover the ingredients with the VitaClay Chef lid
- Cook for two hours on the Slow Cook setting
- Add salt if needed
If possible stir this meal one hour into the cooking. If you can't do that or forget don't worry. It's a very forgiving recipe.
