Chicken Stew with Turnips & Mushrooms

EatingWell Test Kitchen

In this healthy chicken stew recipe, we save prep time by using pre-sliced mushrooms and pre-chopped kale (found near packaged fresh greens). If you don't like turnips, potatoes are an easy substitution.

Cooking method

Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pot. Add turnips, mushrooms, onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is limp, 3 to 5 minutes. Add wine and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in kale, broth and rosemary. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer, cover and cook, stirring once or twice, until the turnips are tender, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Stir the mixture into the stew and cook until thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and season the stew with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.
