Sim's Homey Chicken Stew

The weather is acting up this week so I'm grounded at home. It's the time of the year when you start to miss home. Even though we didn't cook this at home (I invented this dish myself), the warmth and familiar taste of my chicken stew will ease away your homesickness in the first bite!

Sim's Homey Chicken Stew
serves 2

1 free range chicken drumstick, in chunks
1 potato, peeled and diced into chunks
1 whole carrot, peeled and diced into chunks
4 small tomatoes
1/2 onion
3 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon butter (alternatively, use olive oil for a heart-healthy meal)
Water 300 mL
Black pepper, parsley, and rosemary leaves, to taste


Season chunks of drumsticks with ground black pepper, parsley, and rosemary for 30 minutes.

In a large wok, heat butter until completely melted, saute onions and garlic until brown (or until the neighbor pokes his nose through to admire the smell).

Add drumstick and potato chunks while flipping regularly until chicken is tender.

In a large (steel or porcelain) pot, layer chicken at the bottom.

Followed by carrots, potatoes, and tomatoes. Drain sauce from wok into the pot. Add in 300 mL of water, cover, and cook at 140 for 3 hours.

Serve on a bowl, garnish with extra rosemary and parsley, and ta-da!
Serve with rice or eat as a standalone.

Now did I just hear somebody shouting "Marry me!"?
