Recipe for Health: Lauren’s Butternut, Sage Chicken Stew

Food for Thought:

Curious to try freekeh, yet not sure where to go after eating it as a hot cereal?

Blogger, amateur chef and former high-school teacher Lauren Martin created this slow-cooker recipe. If you don’t eat meat, it’s just as delicious if you leave out the chicken and substitute vegetarian broth.

2 bone-in chicken breasts
½ C (dry) freekeh
1 large carrot
2 celery stalks
1 medium-sized yellow onion
½ C butternut squash, cubed
2 T fresh sage leaves, chopped
½ T smoked paprika
(or regular paprika)
½ T rosemary
1 t garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
