Chicken & Sweet Potato Stew

February/March 2006

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (741 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.

"Good but I'd put the sweet potatoes in later as they get too soft and tend to disintegrate in 5 hours. Also substituted onions for shallots. "

This "stew" was too bland. It needs more flavour. I even added hot peppers and it was still bland. Any other suggestions?


This was absolutely delicious! I used Boneless / skinless breasts trimmed of fat as well as a large chunked red tomato. The tomato juice blended nicely with the white wine and onion, and rather than rosemary, I substituted an italian seasoning grinder from McCormick (which has rosemary in it...along with other herbs,) which I ground over the tops of the chicken along with some extra salt and pepper to add flavor. (I also reccommend sprinkling Montreal Chicken Seasoning over the chicken and veggies before cooking.) I served this over rice. The juice tastes great with the rice and it makes it a bit more filling. I would reccommend to anyone! Will make it again soon!


Following the comments here, I used three boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into chunks, chunked the sweet potato, added more wine, cooked on high for three hours, and added the mushrooms only for the last hour. Delicious -- my husband has already requested it again!

I made this despite the negative reviews, but am unhappy with it for other reasons than the way it turned out. I cut the recipe in half, but used either full or nearly full amounts of seasonings, due to all the complaints of it being bland. It tasted pretty good, and I might make it again. HOWEVER: when I input the recipe into my calorie-tracking software, it came out at 430 calories a serving - a far cry from the 285 calories listed here. I cross referenced the main ingredients with another calorie tracking website, and came out with the same result. If you think you'll like it, it's worth trying - just be aware it is apparently substantially more caloric than indicated here, and for that reason, I only gave it 3 stars.
