A one pot meal full of comfort and flavor. Chicken Stew Veracruz has robust spices and many textures that makes this a complete and satisfying one pot meal.
Begin by spicing the chicken with the lemon pepper and salt. Heat 1 Tbsp of olive oil in a Dutch oven. Add the chicken and brown on both sides for 2 - 3 minutes. Remove the chicken and set aside.
Add the remaining oil and heat. Once warm, add the rest of the spices and cook for 1 minute. Add the onions and begin to cook down. After 3 minutes, add the flour. Mix thoroughly. Next, add in the carrots and parsnips. Cook for a couple of minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add in the tomato sauce, veracha sauce and the diced tomatoes. Simmer for a few minutes. Now layer in the vegetables beginning with zucchini and squash, followed by the remaining vegetables. Add the chicken back in and the herbs. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
