Mom's Comforting Chicken Stew

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"This is a delicious, rich, creamy, and satisfying chicken stew that my mom makes when the weather is nippy out. Use more or less veggies to your liking if desired. I usually bake a homemade loaf of bread to dig in. This is comfort food at its best!"
