We couldn't believe how much we love this stew! To save time and dishes instead of serving with mashed potatoes rice or pasta I cubed 3 small potatoes and added them along with the other ingredients. I also omitted the butter and used spray olive oil to cut down on the fat grams. We will certainly enjoy this one pot meal time and again! Read More

It wasn't a bad recipe but i wouldnt call it a stew. The tomato base of this dish was way too much for my liking and it took away the essence of the dish which should be the chicken! Read More

This was very tasty although I wouldn't quite call it "stew". It was more like soap loaded up with great ingredients. This would go well over pasta served up with some crusty Italian bread. The taste was wonderful. I did make a some changes; I used four cloves of garlic instead of two; sliced up a stalk of celery and used two carrots (not too thinly sliced more like 1/2" or so) instead of one. Another reason this didn't get a full five stars was prep/cook time. It is one of my biggest peeves when checking out recipes. IT took me longer from start to finish than the author's total time about 45 minutes. Not a big deal but when you want to have dinner on the table at a certain time it's kind of frustrating. I will make this again and serve it over pasta next time! Read More

Everyone in my family loved this and went back for seconds quite a rarity due the picky tendencies. I put the zucchini in last and cooked just long enough to maintain the shape. My family does not like overcooked zucchini! Read More

This was a fast and easy recipe with not a lot of clean up. My family enjoyed it very much! I changed it a little. I put frozen carrots and corn. 1 can of diced tomatoes with onions and garlic already in it. 1 can of regular diced tomatoes although I only used half the tomatoes from the second jar but all of the juice. I used garlic powder and cayenne pepper for seasoning. I let it simmer for about 15 min. and served over rice. Turned out very good. Thanks this will be used again! Read More

We thought this was just O.K. The diced tomato base was a bit much for my kids. I had to add a cup of broth to thin it to a "stew" consistency. It was quick and I might make it again in a pinch. Read More
