foodie friday : peruvian chicken stew

The last thing I used that chicken for was this Trader Joe's Peruvian Chicken Stew.  Another super fast, easy, flavorful dish.  I really think it would be great in any variety of ways... do the chicken, or maybe some other grilled meat, or maybe just load it down with veggies! Don't try to find this on the Trader Joe's website... I found it on a Trader Joe's Fan phone app.  I don't think its run by the TJ company though.  

The recipe on the app is as follows (with my modifications in italics) :

1 bag TJ frozen Chimichurri Rice
1 package TJ Just Chicken, Diced / 2 C shredded chicken
1 can Garbanzo Beans
1 carton chicken broth
2 T olive oil
1 onion diced
1 T nonfat greek yogurt / sour cream per serving
half bag of TJ Melange a Trois frozen pepper strips (just cut up a large bell pepper)
1/2 C + TJ frozen roasted corn

Saute onion and pepper strips and corn in olive oil until softened.  
Add entire carton chicken broth, chimichurri rice, garbanzo beans, and diced chicken.
Simmer for 15 minutes
Serve with a dollop of greek yogurt or sour cream

This is not spicy at all, and had pretty good flavor.  It was even better as leftovers.  Kyle and Myles weren't in love with the garbanzo beans so I won't include them next time.  Maybe a softer bean... black beans or something.  I will definitely try this out again!

  1. This looks like it would be good to eat while watching the Cat's in the SEC tourney this weekend :)
