Chicken and Seafood Stew

I bought a bag of seafood mix from Trader Joe's a few weeks ago and have been trying to figure out what to do with it.  I had a craving for a spicy tomato based stew and thought about a take on a southern stew with seafood and chicken, the results were delicious!  


1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast cut into chunks.
1 lb. bag seafood mix (scallops, shrimp,calamari)
4 cloves garlic, chopped
 2 cans diced tomatoes
2 potatoes peeled and diced
1 onion diced
1t. Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 bag frozen peas
1/2 t. red pepper flakes
ground pepper to taste
salt to taste

Directions:  In a large stockpot saute onion with small amount of olive oil, add chicken and garlic, cook until seared and brown on both sides, be careful not to burn garlic.  Add chicken broth, diced tomatoes, carrots, onions, red pepper flakes, old bay seasoning and salt and pepper to taste, cook until potatoes and carrots are tender, about 30 minutes.  Add frozen seafood mix and peas, turn off heat, cover and let sit for 10 minutes.  If you like a thinner stew/soup add more chicken broth until the desired consistency is achieved, this recipe can easily be adapted to whatever seafood/veggie you have on hand, it was great over rice the next day..Enjoy
