Can you freeze Chicken Stew?

To further extend the shelf life of cooked chicken stew, freeze it; freeze it in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags. How long does cooked chicken stew last in the freezer? Properly stored, it will maintain the best quality for about 4 to 6 months but will remain safe beyond that time.

How do you thicken chicken stew?

Whisk a teaspoon of flour in a little cold water to make a slurry, then stir into the stew as it’s cooking. Don’t add dry flour directly to the stew as it may clump. After adding the slurry, bring the stew to a boil. This will cook out the flour taste and allow the starch to swell.

Is it better to thicken the stew with flour or cornstarch?

Conclusion: Both cornstarch and flour are effective at thickening soup when you take the proper steps. Remember, cornstarch absorbs more water and is better at thickening in general. However, flour is better when needed in large quantities to avoid upsetting the flavor of the dish.
