Slow Cooking Thursday~Chicken Stew

Another chicken stew for the crockpot! This differs from my Crockpot Chicken Stew in that it has a tomato base. I like them both equally well. I’ll serve this when my second daughter is away as she does NOT like anything tomato based (even tomato based pizza sauce!)

Chicken Stew
Serves: 4-6
1 can chicken broth — (14-1/2 ounces)
1 can tomato paste — (6 ounces)
1 lb. skinless boneless chicken breasts — cut into 1-inch cubes
2 large  potatoes — peeled and cubed
1 small  onion — chopped
2 celery stalks — sliced
2 large carrots — sliced
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. dried thyme
1 1/2 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. cornstarch
In a crock pot, combine the chicken broth and tomato paste.  Add next 8 ingredients and stir to mix well. Cover and cook on high heat for 3-1/2 to 4 hours, or on low heat for 7 to 8 hours.
Mix water and cornstarch in small bowl; stir until smooth. Stir into stew. Cook, covered, for 30 minutes more, or until thickened.
