How to make it

  • You do not have to do this step. I do this because I want my Chicken to be free of the effluence it gains during the butchering process.
  • I put my rinsed Chicken in a Large Pot, Cover with Water & Parboil for 5 minutes on High.
  • Put Chicken into a Bowl, Dump dirty water & wash out cooking pot. (I use soap)
  • Place Parboiled Chicken back into clean pot & pour Water to 2/3rds up the side of pot.
  • Turn Heat onto Medium.
  • Add:
  • The Bay Leaves, some Salt & the large Diced Potatoes, stir & cover loosely.
  • Pour Olive Oil into the Deep Skillet & allow it to get hot over Medium High Heat
  • Put the large Diced Onions, more Salt, all Pepper, some Thyme & some Sage in & stir.
  • This will cook quickly, so keep your eye on it & stir often. Cook for about 3 minutes.
  • Put in the sliced large & whole small Garlic Cloves & stir. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Put in the rest of the Thyme, Sage & Salt.
  • Then put the Carrots in for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring.
  • Add the bite sized String or Green Beans & stir for about 1 more minute. Take off Heat.
  • Slowly add the sauted Ingredients to the Chicken & Water ect Pot.
  • Get everything from the saute pan into the Chicken Pot.
  • Add the 3/4 Cup Flax seeds to the Chicken Pot & stir.
  • Reduce Heat to Medium/Medium Low, stirring occasionally.
  • I cooked mine for a little over an hour or until the chicken falls off the bone
  • Serve with a loaf of Muligrain Bread, Cheese & Butter & a Salad.
  • Enjoy this with people you care for.
  • NOTE: FLAXSEEDS ARE THE VEGETARIAN'S OMEGA 3 fatty acids. I added the Flax Seeds because Flax Seeds help; Arthritis, Digestive Problems, Joint Pain, Skin Conditions, Nosebleeds & ease the formation of Cysts in Breasts as well as decreasing the inflammatory process, thereby helping the Liver cleanse our Systems more easily.

    My husband and I within the last three weeks have gone "organic." It's nice to find some recipes that are healthy AND delicious. We still give our selves one day a week to eat "badly." ^5

    I'm looking forward to trying your recipe. i add ground flax seed to many foods. i use it in bread machine recipes, on oatmeal,yogurt,ice cream, cookies, cakes, etc. it adds a delightful nutty taste.

    flax seeds need to be stored in the frig/frzr or they will become rancid, esp. after they are ground. this is due to their omega 3 fatty acid content.

    I have read when you eat whole flax seed, you gain no benefit because they need to be ground or
    crushed somehow. I use a coffee grinder.
    I am trying the recipe on Saturday when the kids come over, but I will grind about 1/4 cup because these things grow when ground. The other thing I read is that the sooner you eat them when ground the more nutrients gained. It seems they do not stay around for a very long time. Try looking up flax seed and see what you think. I am curious if I read a bogus blog or what.
