Skillet Chicken Stew

Skillet Chicken Stew

From Everyday With Rachael Ray


  1. 3 tablespoons flour
    1 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika, plus more for seasoning
    Salt and pepper
    4 chicken leg quarters, split at the joint to separate legs
    1 tablespoon butter
    One 8-ounce package cremini or white mushrooms, halved
    1 bunch scallions, white and green parts thinly sliced separately
    1 cup chicken broth
    1/2 cup plain whole milk yogurt
    Cooked rice, for serving


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, paprika and 2 pinches each salt and pepper. Coat the chicken pieces with the seasoned flour, shaking off the excess.
  2. In a large, deep skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chicken to the pan, skin side down. Cook, turning occasionally with tongs, until the skin is golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Add the mushrooms and scallion whites to the skillet and cook, stirring often, until tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Stir in the chicken broth, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan, and bring to a boil. Return the chicken pieces to the skillet, cover and simmer over medium-low heat until the juices run clear, 20 to 25 minutes.
  5. Stir the yogurt and scallion greens into the pan sauce; season with salt, pepper and paprika. Stir to coat the chicken with the sauce.
  6. To serve, mound some rice on each of 4 plates and top with the chicken.

Serves 4.
