I tried this a few nights ago, its now one of my top 5 favorites to make for my family. The flavors blend together~ its pure harmony! The main thing I like about this is its a switch up from your regular hearty beef stew that everyone loves to have in the winter. This goes great with winter weather and the summer heat.

Dear Guardian Angel, I believe in God’s time all wounds will be healed… I pray that he should remain in my heart and you, most loved guardian angel, will always be with me through all obstacles through all accomplishments and all of life’s journeys.

Chicken Stew in White Wine Sauce

Recipe adapted from Donna Hay

*Try to purchase all ingredients organic 🙂

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 pound chicken breasts

11/2 cups brussels sprouts

sea salt and black pepper to taste

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 pound baby potatoes, cut into 2 inch slices

1 cup chicken broth

1/2 cup dry white wine

4 sprigs thyme

2 tablespoons lemon juice

finely grated pecorino cheese, to serve


Heat oil in a large saucepan over high heat. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove from pan; set aside.

Add brussels sprouts and cook for 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add potatoes, broth, wine and thyme; bring to a boil. Top with chicken and cover with a lid. Reduce heat to medium. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender and brussels sprouts are cooked through but have a nice crunch. Add lemon juice and stir until combined. Top with cheese. Enjoy!

Happy Cooking!

    • I’m writing down the recipe to try this week, one question: are you curbing the potatoes about the size of a tater tot?
      Sorry, Niki, when I was writing down the recipe I saw your 2″ slices!

      • Hi Vicki! They can be whatever size you want! I said such small slices to be sure everything is done at once especially because potatoes can take so long to cook. My brussels sprouts were crunchy but I liked them that way. Also try guryere cheese with this, its to die for this this.

  1. Lovely Words and Lovely recipe. As one who was fortunate to sample the Chicken Stew I can say I loved the wine sauce. It was savory and rich with flavor; but not heavy. I had to have a second bowl. 🙂 I believe your Guardian Angel is beaming with pride. ❤

  2. This recipe looks so good & easy. I am always looking for more recipes with Brussel sprouts.
    I’m going to make this recipe this week!
