This is delicious just as is. I did sautee everything first for added flavor. When finished I adjusted the seasoning to taste with just with a little salt and pepper. I love that it's not like every other stew. For one thing there are no potatoes! Hubby loved it and I'll make this again and again. Read More

I found this to be a little watery rather than as creamy as I thought it would turn out to be. It tasted okay and was simple to make but I would have preferred it to be creamier. Maybe by using a chicken cream of soup instead of chicken broth. The cream of cheese didn't mix very well either. I checked my amount of ingredients and I did everything as listed. I don't think I'll make it again. Read More

I made this last week as part of a lower-carb gluten-free whole foods diet for myself my boyfriend and his teenage son. HUGE hit!! Reminded us so much of pot pie filling that I have it going in the slow cooker now and have made an awesome pie crust from whole oat and millet flours. Can't wait. I'm drooling just thinking about it.:-) Read More

Good but a bit bland. This is a definite repeat with a few more changes. Made this Sunday for the family using the high setting so it was ready in 4 hours. I omitted the mushrooms and peas at the request of the boys and doubled the carrots. Next time I will use crinkle carrots because the chicken cooked down so much that it was almost shredded and the larger baby carrots didn't look right. I also used frozen chopped onions instead of fresh. I was surprised at the thickening quality of the cream cheese spread but it didn't add enough flavor compared to how the cheese tasted alone. Next time I am going to add Johnny's garlic seasoning blend to up the taste and maybe Alouette Cheese spread. Read More

To me this stew has a sweetness to it because of the peas and carrots...a welcome change from salty\peppery stews. Read More

This was super easy and delicious! My whole family loved it...... but it's NOT a stew! More like a chicken pot pie soup. The title on this is very misleading but I will definitely make this again in the near future. Read More
