How To Make Hearty Roasted Vegetable and Chicken Stew

Have a satisfying spoonful of this hearty and rich chicken stew cooked with mushrooms, carrots, and potatoes, well-spiced to warm you up on cold days.

Preparation: 50 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes
Total: 1 hour 15 minutes



  • 8ozbaby bella mushrooms,quartered
  • 4large carrots,peeled, cut into ½-inch thick rounds
  • lbsyukon gold potatoes,(about 5 medium sized potatoes) cubed
  • 5tbspolive oil,divided
  • tspkosher salt,divided
  • tspfreshly ground black pepper,divided
  • ½tspharissa powder
  • 4chicken thighs,(about 1½ lbs) skin on, bone-in
  • ¼cupall-purpose flour
  • ½large yellow onion,chopped
  • 3cloveslarge garlic,minced
  • ½tspcumin,ground
  • 1tspturmeric,ground
  • cupwhite wine
  • 6cupschicken stock,(48 oz)
  • 2bay leaves
  • 3largekale leaves,any variety, stripped from the stem, torn


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Spread the chopped mushrooms, carrots, and potatoes on a baking sheet in three separate rows, keeping each vegetable separate from the others.

  3. Drizzle 3 tablespoons of olive oil over the vegetables, then sprinkle with ¾ teaspoon of salt, ¾ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, and ½ teaspoon harissa.

  4. Toss each individual row to coat.

  5. Roast the veggies in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes. When fork-tender, set them aside while you finish the soup base.

  6. While the vegetables roast, cook the chicken and begin assembling the stew.

  7. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a Dutch oven or large heavy-bottomed soup pot set over medium heat.

  8. Trim the chicken of excess fat and skin.

  9. Sprinkle 4 four chicken thighs with ¾ teaspoon of salt and ¾ teaspoon of freshly ground pepper.

  10. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the thighs, skin side down.

  11. Cook the thighs for 7 minutes, until the skin has a nice golden brown color.

  12. Flip the chicken and cook for another 5 minutes. A few bits of the skin may stick to the pan when you flip. (That’s okay.)

  13. After cooking, the skin should be crisp and golden, and there should be about a ¼ cup of fat in the pan. The chicken will not be completely cooked, which is okay.

  14. Transfer it to a plate.

  15. Sprinkle ¼ cup of all-purpose flour over the chicken fat.

  16. Use a sturdy wooden spoon to stir continuously and scrape the brown bits (the fond) off the bottom of the pan.

  17. Continue cooking for about 6 minutes until the color deepens and it looks like a golden paste.

  18. Add the chopped onion, minced garlic, turmeric, and cumin to the pan with the roux.

  19. Continue to stir and scrape the bottom of the pan. The roux will get crumbly, and the color will continue to deepen.

  20. Keep stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan for about 5 minutes until the onions are cooked through.

  21. Slowly add ⅓ cup of white wine, scraping the bottom of the pan to release any brown bits, and stir for another minute.

  22. Slowly pour in the stock while stirring.

  23. Add the bay leaves and bring to a gentle simmer.

  24. Remove the skin from the chicken thighs and discard.

  25. Add the thighs to the pot of the simmering stock.

  26. Cover with a lid, but leave it slightly ajar.

  27. Continue to simmer over medium-low heat for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Don’t let it boil.

  28. Use tongs to remove bay leaves and chicken from the pot and transfer to a plate.

  29. Add half of the roasted potatoes and ½ of the carrots to the pot (reserve the mushrooms). 

  30. Use an immersion blender to puree the vegetables into the soup.

  31. After pureeing, add the remaining vegetables, including all of the mushrooms, and let them warm through.

  32. When the chicken has cooled enough to handle, use two forks to shred it into bite-sized pieces.

  33. Discard the bones. Add the chicken back to the pot.

  34. Stir in the kale. Let everything warm through over low heat for a couple of minutes and make sure the kale is wilted.

  35. To serve, ladle into bowls and serve with fresh crusty bread.
