Chicken & Sweet Potato Stew

February/March 2006

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (688 votes)

Here's a dinnertime warmer with a hint of spring's sweetness, designed for that day when you'd rather be outside raking the leaves from the garden, getting it ready for what's ahead, than slaving over the stove.

delicious!

I made this last night for my boyfriend and I and we loved it! Only changes I made: didn't have white wine so I substituted chicken broth, and added thyme because people said it was bland. It came out great; even my picky 2-year-old ate it. It was even better the next day!

I made this easy dish during the week and I thought it was quite good. I wrote about it in my food blog "Eating the Rainbow" at http://superfoodsyear.blogspot.com/2010/11/chicken-and-sweet-potato-stew....

Overall, I think it was good. In addition to using fresh rosemary, I also added a tablespoon or so of herbes de provence. I didn't use the lemon either in the end (I forgot) and didn't miss it. I don't think my sweet potatoes were the best because they didn't taste sweet, but I think this brothy dish is worth making again, but with more garlic next time!

This was very good with some adjustments- I used Italian seasoning instead of just rosemary, a yellow onion instead of shallots, chopped garlic instead of whole cloves, plus about 2 cups chicken broth. I chopped the veggies instead of doing bigger spears, too. This was great with some toast to soak up the juices. I will make this again. My family had no complaints. :)

Cut up veggies and chicken, used skinless boneless chicken breast. Added rosemary, basil, and oregano. It seemed bland, and needed something to counteract all the acid from the wine and vinegar.
