Chicken Stew with Turnip and Mushrooms


I love fall. Hot weather isn't something I do well with and most of the summer I stay indoors. Growing up in Seattle it was never overly hot and the humidity was low. Then I moved to West Virginia. The humidity and heat almost did me in the first summer. It didn't help that we had a heat wave and the day my husband and I got married it was almost 100 (and yes my husband and I met and got married in only 11 months - sometimes things just fall into place). Fall is a total other story. I love fall in my state. The leaves are beautiful here and the weather is mild. Plus it means lots of soups, stews, and chili. It is by far my favorite time of the year. Tonight I tried a new recipe for Chicken Stew with Turnips and Mushrooms from the October 2013 issue of Eating Well magazine.

This recipe has 14 ingredients. It takes 45 minutes of total time, all of which is active and makes 6 servings. I only made a few modifications to the original recipe. First, I used baby kale. I was so happy to have found  washed and ready to eat baby kale at the store this week. It's a new item and I scooped it up. So much easier than washing and cutting regular kale. In order to have the turnips fully cooked it took approximately 10 minutes more than the recipe suggested. I really don't like the texture of undercooked turnips. I served the stew with homemade Irish soda bread.

My whole family enjoyed this stew. The flavor was great and the fact that it had mushrooms was the selling point for my two boys. They are both obsessed with mushrooms. The stew was perfect for a cool evening and serving it with Irish soda bread was a nice combination since the bread could sop up the stew. This is definitely a recipe I would make again. If you aren't a fan of turnips this recipe would also work well with potatoes, sweet potatoes or parsnips.

  1. The heat and especially the humidity were ridiculous this past summer. It was one of our worst up here in MA.

    1. Our summer was all over the place. It was very, very wet and then very hot.

  2. Sometimes people do just 'know' when they get married. Both sets of my grandparents did the same and were married their whole lives. :)

    The stew does sound good for cooler weather. You do a great job with your photos.

  3. I love the baby kale that's at the market now. Great idea to put it into the stew. I love turnip also.

    1. I love baby kale. It was the first time I had seen it at our stores and it is so much easier than dealing with regular kale! I agree about turnips, they are delicious.

  4. We love stew any kind of stew but this sounds delicious with baby kale. I've actually never had baby kale in stew before so I'm willing to try it. So happy that you're back to normal. I love that picture of the sculpture and it would make a great place to take a pic of you. :)

  5. I'm the opposite to you ... I hibernate during winter and just love the warmer weather. Spring and Autumn are certainly favourites though - a good time to get in the yard and enjoy the outdoors. Have Fall fun, cheers Alison x

    1. My husband is the same as you :) He prefers warmer weather. We don't have spring here really, it goes from 30 to 90 in a week. I would love if we had an actual spring this year!

  6. That looks really delicious. I'm always looking for ways to use greens and I haven't tried too many turnip dishes so this seems like a good start.

  7. I just finished having a kale/tomato/bell pepper salad and the produce came from my garden. I will pass on the recipe because I'm not fond of turnips.
