No -- you just add the chicken to the pot with the other ingredients and it'll cook plenty by the time the stew is done. If I can make a suggestion, I'd try chicken thighs which are more flavorful and which stand up to longer cooking. Good luck!

Yes on the thighs....breasts will dry out and be way overcooked in a stew...

But if you do use breasts, because that's what you have, add them in towards the end so that they just cook through and don't get tough.

Cheers for the answers! I went for adding the chicken a little later and it turned out pretty good, will definitely try some thighs next time too.
