Chunky Chicken, Vegetable and Rosemary Stew

Chunky Chicken Vegetable and Rosemary StewHere’s a great one-pot meal to warm and soothe a hungry, weary body after a hard workout. By using chicken, vegetables and beans, this stew provides a serving of high-quality protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytonutrients. Canola oil is a good source of healthy fats.

Let stew stand 30 minutes to develop flavors and texture. It’s even better the next day!
