Heartwarming Chicken Stew with Vegetables

Pat Morris


This recipe is not only heartwarming, but it is easy to put together and cook on the stove for 1 to 1-1/2 hours (No waiting for it to cook in a crockpot all day). I have a neighbor who just had surgery and I decided to make him some chicken stew; however, he let me know that he cannot eat tomatoes; so I developed this recipe. You can easily add a can of stewed tomatoes, if you would like tomatoes in your stew. After I gave a couple of bowls to him; I put stewed tomatoes in the remainder of the stew and shared it with 2 neighbors. They said, “It hit the spot in this chilly weather.” Enjoy!
