Sharing is caring!

A really flavoursome Spanish chicken stew cooked in the slow cooker and simply packed with delicious warming Spanish flavours. A really healthy, filling family dinner.

I love to make (and eat) this delicious Spanish Chicken Stew, it’s got all the sunshine flavours of Spanish food, but in a warming one pot casserole that’s perfect for autumn or winter dinner.

It’s super easy to throw our slow cooker chicken stew together in the morning before you go out, all the vegetables are chunkily chopped making it quick to make.

You can make this with fresh peppers if you like, I prefer the jarred ones, they give a sweeter flavour.

And because it’s a true one pot chicken casserole with potatoes in the stew, it makes for a really easy dinner when you get home, just serve spooned into bowl with crusty bread for dipping in.
