I came up with this recipe because, like many of us, I try to cook healthy. I substituted red meat for chicken breast and regular potatoes for sweet potatoes. It came out so much better and more moist than I could ever imagine. I want to share it and see what people think about it.

This is a good base for the stew. The changes I made were based on what was home and personal taste. I used 3 sweet potatoes and it seemed like not enough chicken. Next time I will make 2 chicken breasts. With the onion I added a stalk of celery. Ingredients added with the chicken were: small amount of balsamic vinegar, dried rosemary, dried parsley, and garlic. Bay leaf was added with the broth. So yummy Read More

I turned this into a crockpot meal. I substituted black beans for kidney beans. It turned out well. I cooked the chicken onions and chicken broth for three hours in low. Shredded the chicken and added the carrots sliced mushrooms and two giant cubes sweet potatoes. I thought it was a good comfort food meal. I have one picky eater who ate everything in this. Read More

Simple and delicious. As usual I added Tony Chachere's and Cayenne and took another's advice and sprinkled a dab of rosemary. Next time will add celery and a bay leaf. Not quite a stew but still great! Read More
