Chicken & Sweet Potato Stew

February/March 2006

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (780 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. "

I used boneless skinless chicken breast cut into chunks and chunked the sweet potatoes. added more wine and found it very delicious


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.


very bland


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
