Chicken Stew (Oil Free)

Chicken Stew (Oil Free)

This is my version of chicken stew. It is completely oil free and healthy. This can be made as a vegetarian dish. Instead of chicken, add vegetables of your choice like cauliflower, peas, beans etc and instead of chicken stock, add vegetable stock. Tastes really awesome.
