This down on the farm Amish-style comforting one pot stew, is sure to take the chill out of a winter night. Anytime you have a hungry gang and don’t want to resort to fast food, this quick cooking Hearty Amish Chicken Stew will be ready before you know it.

Serves: 6
Cooking Time: 35 min

10 cups chicken broth
4 potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
1 small onion, cut into 1-inch chunks
2 celery stalks, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1 carrot, peeled and sliced thin
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
12 ounces bowtie pasta
1 rotisserie chicken, skinned, deboned, and shredded (about 3 cups)

1. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, combine broth, potatoes, onion, celery, carrot, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Cook 10 minutes.

2. Stir in pasta and cook 8 minutes. Add chicken and cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until chicken is heated through. Spoon into bowls and serve immediately.

This will thicken up as it sits, so you may want to add additional water when you reheat any leftovers.
This one-pot meal has it all! The only thing we'd suggest adding is a bread basket with some delicious buttery breadsticks and some warm biscuits.
