How To Make Rustic Irish Chicken and Cabbage Stew
Make a lovely pot of savory chicken and cabbage stew that's doused with beer for a richer taste. Ideal for lunch or dinner on rainy days and perfect for a get-together on St. Patrick's Day!
Create slurry by combining the beer, 2½ cups of broth, garlic, bay leaves, and thyme. Set aside
Place the onions at the bottom of the crockpot.
On the bed of onions, layer the chicken pieces on top.
Distribute the bacon and mushrooms evenly on top of the chicken.
Pour the beer mixture over the chicken. Cover and cook over HIGH for 3 to 4 hours, or on LOW for 6 to 7 hours
Add the potatoes and carrots roughly 2 hours before stew is ready. Continue cooking.
Add your cabbage roughly 1 hour before the stew is ready. Continue cooking.
Roughly 15 minutes before it is ready to be served, dissolve the flour in the remaining broth.
Temporary remove chicken from the mix and set aside. Add your slurry into the crockpot while stirring
Once the starch has been combined, return chicken back into the mix, season to taste with salt and pepper, and allow to finish cooking, approximately 5 minutes.
Serve together with potatoes of your choice, or crusty bread.
