CHICKEN WITH POTATO STEW AND ASSORTED SALAD

INGREDIENTS FOR POTATO STEW:
5 potatoes, peeled and cubed,
1 large onion, chopped,
4 cloves of garlic, minced,
2 carrots, sliced,
1 cup cherry tomatoes,
fresh chopped parsley,
2 tablespoons Vegeta,
salt and pepper to taste,
1/4 cup olive oil;
3,4 cups of liquid (broth or water)
DIRECTIONS:
Saute onion for few minutes; add garlic and carrots and saute for 2, 3 minutes longer, stirring;
add potatoes, tomatoes, seasonings (hold on to the salt if you are using Vegeta which is salty enough )cover with liquid; cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until potatoes an carrots are soft but not mushy; garnish with parsley and serve as a side dish for your favorite meat, or no meat at all, next to a fresh crisp salad. I've served mine with rotisserie chicken, cut up in decent pieces and flavored with sweet chili and garlic sauce, for a better taste.

INGREDIENTS FOR ASSORTED SALAD:
few broken lettuce leaves,
1 cup cherry tomatoes,
1/2 English cucumber, sliced or diced,
1/2 medium sweet red onion,
2 tablespoons olive oil,
2 tablespoons white vinegar,
1/3 cup water,
salt;
Mix and serve!

  1. wow, I`m so happy that you are using Vegeta, because it`s a croatian product (I`m from Croatia), and it`s mine favourite ingredient in meals. and of course, it looks amazing, I love the colours of your food...

  2. Hi Sweetie, after I read your comment I went straight to the kitchen and checked the Vegeta label and you are absolutely right, "Made in Croatia"...I've never seen that before, never looked actually...I love this stuff so much!
