Chicken, Mushroom, and Mixed Veggie Stew

A healthy and hearty comfort food perfect for rainy days! This recipe takes marinated chicken, mushrooms, and mixed vegetables and brings them all together in one dish, all made in your MEC pot!  The water soluble nutrients and steam in the pot creates a natural broth for the stew, with no need to add large quantities of water or other excessive ingredients to make the broth. Once you have finished preparing this healthy dish, you can serve it on its own as a stew, or you can serve it over a bed of steamed rice, on bread rolls, or on quinoa!
