Gin-Gan’s Stew

My Grandad’s stew is super easy to make, cheap, and if you make a big batch, can be frozen and eaten whenever- perfect for students!

Ingredients:

Chicken breasts, chopped (usually 1 per person)

Chicken and/or beef stock (enough for flavour and to make a good sauce; I usually use one of each)

Onions, chopped

Red and green peppers, chopped

Carrots, chopped

Mushrooms

Red Wine (this isn’t really necessary but I always put some in; you can buy red cooking wine from Sainsbury’s for a pound and you only need it for a bit of colour and flavour)

Potatoes, chopped

You can also add baked beans or pasta to bulk it out if you wish.

Method:

Brown the chicken in the pan (you need a big-ish pan if you’re making a lot, obviously).

Add the onions, stocks and the wine.

Add all the veg including any pasta/beans if using them.

Everything will boil and simmer and cook together for an hour and a half. Check the meat is cooked and tender.

Serve with crusty bread at lunchtime and mash for dinner. Easy!
