Stews are my favourite. Today I am sharing a healthy and nutritious stew recipe prepared with chicken and broccoli. I love making stews as it is easy, quick and moreover it is a scrumptious and healthier option. I always prefer thin gravy curries and love making them often whenever i curve for it. This is the time of the year when you get lots of fresh green veggies that are nutritious and good for health so I try to make use of it to the maximum by making stews or salad or even love to have them boiled. 

Chicken Broccoli Stew is a very delicious and scrumptious dish. It is a zero oil, low in calories and carbohydrates and super nutritious dish.
