Chicken & Sweet Potato Stew
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 don't have a slow-cooker but I baked it for 5 hours in my oven on a low temperature and it came out well.
I used boneless/skinless chicken thighs with the fat trimmed off. The flavors from the various veggies blended well with the white wine to make a nice flavored broth. I would put the sweet potatoes in maybe 2-3 hrs before done so they don't get to soft.
I prepared this exactly as directed and it was disgusting.
Oh, this was sooo good! I made this on a hot June day mostly for something to take to lunch (so sick of salad / sandwiches ..lol). I agree with those that mentioned adding the sweet potatoes later .. I added mine with 3 hrs cook time left and I think next time I'll try 2 hrs. Sweet potatoes cooked well (quite soft, but not mush), but I'd like them a little firmer.
So yes .. do make this .. you won't be disappointed.
