Six Can Chicken Stew

So now that storm season is under way, I want to share a secret recipe for making meals from cans… all cans… the stuff we should start stocking in our pantries. This first recipe, six can chicken stew is a quick and easy way to make a four hour meal in thirty minutes or less.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 can of chunk chicken
  • 1 can low salt chicken gravy
  • 1 can sliced potatoes
  • 1 can sliced carrots
  • 1 can mixed vegetables
  • 1 can mushrooms

Open all the cans and drain out the liquid. Toss the gravy and the chicken into a medium sauce pot over a medium heat. Then, rinse the contents of the rest of the cans to wash off any excess sodium and add them to the pot. Heat this through thoroughly. Now, you can add your own seasonings, I usually use rosemary and thyme and a little basil.

You can serve this in thick bowls and get about two or three servings. Quick and easy, that’s the theme.
