Sunday Chicken Stew

Colleen Sowa


Just as you make beef stew... or pot roast... this is the chicken version!

My grandmother Mabel Kennedy Sullivan use to make this for our big family... and we just loved it!

It is easy and just a bit different from beef stew.

*** Grandmother use to serve this with home made biscuits!
