Chicken stove top comfort stew

Deb Crane


Creamy and wonderful, this is a recipe I came up with years ago. This is one staple I make when it is
cooler/cold outside, and comfort food is a must.
Simple ingredients and preparation makes this an easy way to curl up to the fire, honker down, and just enjoy. :)
