No-Recipe Stew


Last Sunday I finally had the time to break in my new kitchen (just moved).  So wanted to make something fun.  And, the night before I opened a bottle of red wine that did not merit being finished.  I don’t really want to waste wine therefore determined I would just cook with it.  It had been a windy, sort of cold day around DC, so determined I wanted to make a stew-like meal.  I did some research online and didn’t find anything that truly struck my fancy so got creative and put together my own thing.

Ingredients (all quantities are some/non specific):

-chicken (sliced or cut into pieces)
-cannellini beans
-stewed/canned tomatoes
-mushrooms
-kale
-red wine
-onion (used a red one)
-garlic
-thyme (had some fresh stuff on hand)
-water

I sauteed the garlic and onion for a few minutes then added the chicken and sauteed that until it was cooked.  After that I added the balance of the ingredients and cooked it over low heat for about an hour — I was in no hurry.

It was a very tasty stew, lots of flavor.  I served it with a quality-of-a-name Zin, Zinzilla.  It was a nice wine!

Explore in the kitchen!  Never hurts to have fun and try something new.
