Spring Chicken and Vegetable Stew

Morning! I’ve just ordered the stickers and inserts for my June boxes! Feeling very excited! I hope you are too! My peanut butter praline boxes are still available so snatch them before they’re gone! I’ll let you know when my summer box is ready! It will be available within the next few weeks for sure.

Today I’m sharing the simplest and most nourishing, flavoursome and comforting chicken stew. I made this last week before my spin class. I literally chucked everything in a pan, covered it in water and let it simmer whilst I ran off to my class. I’m definitely going to make this one part of my weekly routine! Just use whatever vegetables are available and in season! Try mixing up the herbs and beans for a different taste and texture too!
