Spanish Chicken Stew

Yields6 ServingsPrep Time15 minsCook Time28 minsTotal Time43 mins

This smokey & flavorful Spanish style stew is very comforting when its really cold out. Its a quick and easy one pot dish that can be made for dinner even on your busiest day. I chop all the veggies ahead of time and store in baggies in the fridge, for an even easier weekday meal. Serve over some hot and steamy rice. If you like heat; add some Cholula hot sauce. Avocado pieces make a creamy garnish that pairs well with this meal.

 ¼ lb Boneless, skinless chicken thighs
 1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
 1 bunch of scallions, chopped (approx 8 stalks)
