From EatingWell: February/March 2006
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.

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.
Needs work: veggies should be cut smaller, chicken should be boneless thighs cut in cubes. Also needs chicken broth for additional liquid and to flavor the chicken.
It was a cold day and the smell of this stew filled the house with anticipation. My husband and I loved it. Have enough left over for another day...Enny
