Chicken Stew over Mashed Potatoes

I got this recipe from Culinary Kicks blog.

For Chicken Stew:

2 large chicken breasts

6 Cups water

2 bay leaves

1 tsp oregano

1 tsp parsley

2 celery ribs, sliced

2 cups frozen mixed veggies

1/2 Cup milk

2 Tbsp flour

Heat the water in a large pot until boiling, then add chicken breasts, bay leaves, oregano and paresley and cook for 30 minutes. Remove the chicken and set aside. Add the celery and mixed veggies to the chicken broth. Shred the chicken and return it to the pot. Bring to a boil. Cook for 15 more minutes until veggies are soft. Place milk and 2 heaping Tbsp flour into a jar and shake until the flour is mixed and no lumps remain. Add to the stew and bring to another boil. Cook for a few minutes until thick and bubbly. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve over mashed potatoes.

Mashed Potatoes

4 Baking Potates, diced

1/4 Cup sour cream

3 Tbsp Butter

1/2 Cup milk

Salt & Pepper

In a sauce pan, cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Simmer until for tender, about 10 minutes. Drain potatoes and pour into a large bowl. Add sour cream, butter and milk. Mash the potatoes with an electric beater until all the lumps are gone and it is smooth and fluffy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
