Easily Seasoned Tasty One Pot Chicken Stew

Elaine Douglas


Do you have some leftover antipasto or salsa from your last entertaining? This is for you. Give your chicken stew a flavour lift.
I used the usual common seasonings but then I topped it up with the prepared antipasto. The vegetarian antipasto contained a great variety of vegetables and seasonings. It is an easy way to add more flavour to the stew.
