Place olive oil in pot and carmelize onions until light brown. Add 3 cups of the reserved broth and tomato paste and bring to a boil on medium high heat. Add de-boned chicken, carrots, celery, mushrooms, corn and peas. Mix cornstarch with milk and add to pot, stirring until stew thickens. Place on center rack of 275 degree oven and cook for 2 hours. Check seasoning before serving and serve over hot biscuits or mashed potatoes.
