This satisfying stew stars chunks of chicken and tender braised escarole in a flavorful Dijon wine sauce. Try it with boneless, skinless chicken thighs or pork tenderloin, if you prefer. It doubles easily in the same pot. Serve with rustic whole-grain bread.

This was amazingly good! My husband, who usually can pick out the ingredients when he tastes, couldn't quite make out what was in this. He said that he never would have guessed dijon mustard.

The escarole was fun to work with and the chicken breasts (I will say that they came from our local gourmet/health food store) turned out tender and full of flavor from all of the different components that went into the broth.

I will make this again. On top of being a healthful and flavorful meal, it is also very pretty!

We served this with crusty rolls and Trader Joe's rosemary, oil asiago cheese. A great meal!!


I usually like Eating Well's recipes, but this one was just awful! I'm not a picky eater, very adventurous, in fact, but neither my partner nor I could eat this. The end result was much too bitter and sour at the same time, and we followed the directions to the letter. We don't want to waste the food, but we sure can't eat it! What now?

We agree 100%! To us, the ingredients did not meld together at all! Horrible!


This was as easy & tasty as it looks. This is a keeper for me.
