 This easy recipes for weight loss is very easy to makes. From start to finish it takes between 30-40 minutes to make this. And I like to make bigger batch so that I have lunch for two days.

If you like to have something lighter for lunch, this is a great alternative for dinner recipes for weight loss too.

This chicken recipe for weight loss is my moms recipe. She has been making this forever. So, it’s a well loved recipe in our family.

If you prefer, you can also leave all the vegetables chunky for this weight loss stew recipe. That includes potatoes as well. I like the sauce to be thicker, which is why I blend the sauce and then add grated potatoes. Grated potatoes help thicken the sauce even more and are an interesting texture in my opinion.

To serve you can add a tablespoon of olive oil on top and some more dried herbs on top.

And to go along, I like to serve a big bowl of salad. Any salad will do but purple cabbage in particular goes well with this chicken stew for weight loss.
