Quick Fix Chicken Stew

This chicken stew has all the comfort of a hearty stew without the intensive prep or extended cook time. This stew is composed of a large helping of vegetables and succulent shredded chicken. A great combination of fibre and protein which slows down the digestion of any sugars in the meal and therefore prevents a spike in blood sugar. Balancing blood sugar plays an important role in reducing inflammation in the body.
