Chicken Stew

Chicken Stew


BinsuI love Chicken prepared in almost any form. But when we have it for breakfast, the choice is always the ‘Chicken Stew‘. Its a comfort food also served at large gatherings. Recently we had gathered at our friends place after they had returned from vacation in India and needless to say, it was a fantastic spread ! They had carried along with them the perfect accompaniment for the Chicken Stew, the traditional Kerala bakery bread. Though its a bit thicker than most of the normal loaves sold in the supermarket, its one of the best milk bread I’ve had !

Though most Chicken Stew recipes  can seem similar, like most dishes every person has their own ‘Midas’ touch that adds a unique character to their preparation…. and I loved this dish..!!
