September 9: Saint Peter Claver Columbian Stew

4 quick things for Saint Peter C:

1. He was born and raised in Spain.
2. He was a zealous Jesuit.
3. He did his big ministerial work in Columbia.
4. How big was the work? Oh, he baptized over 300,000 souls there. Yep.

2 tips for this recipe:

1. You can make this more of a soup with more broth, or more of a stew with less broth. Bare minimum, you’ll need 5 cups of broth (the grated potatoes will soak it up!)

2. I used an instant pot to get my frozen chicken cooked, and then I roasted it on top of that time, but if you are better at planning ahead and have defrosted chicken, all you need to do is roast your chicken for 10-15 minutes at 425!


8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 cup chopped onion
5 cups chicken broth, divided
2 cups corn kernels, divided

2 bay leaves
1 pound Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and grated or finely diced, divided

Saint Peter Claver, pray for us!
