Indian Orange Chicken Stew

This recipe can be made either in a slow cooker or conventional oven. You can adjust spices and ingredients to what you like. I used an Indian spice called Garam Masala, but you can substitute whatever you have on hand such as any combination of cloves, cumin, coriander, cardamom, curry powder, etc.


1 2 oz can tomato paste
1 10 oz can cream of chicken soup
1 cup orange juice
2 cups chicken broth
2-3 tablespoons Garam Masala. See description here: Garam Masala
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh garlic to taste - roughly chopped (I used the whole head)
2 onions – peeled, quartered and sliced thinly
1 green pepper – seeded and sliced thinly
1 turnip – peeled and sliced into small pieces
8 potatoes – sliced into about 1 inch pieces pieces, peeling optional
1 bag (8-10 pieces) of frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs that has been thawed for 2 days in fridge.
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter (optional)


Place all ingredients except chicken in slow cooker or large roasting pan and mix together well. Brown chicken in skillet in olive oil and/or butter and place in slow cooker or roasting pan.

If using slow cooker, cover and cook on high 3-4 hours. If using oven, place covered roasting pan in a 400 degree oven and bake for 1.5 hours. In either method, make sure chicken is cooked through and all vegetables are tender.
