How To Thicken Chicken Stew?

By tossing the sauteed veggies with flour, you help thicken the broth. If you want a thicker broth after it has simmered for 30 minutes, dissolve one teaspoon of cornstarch in a little water or broth and add it to the simmering pot. Make sure to cook the stew a few minutes more so the cornstarch cooks properly.
