The Saturday Simmer: Slow cooker or stovetop chicken stew recipes
With the possible exception of chocolate cake, nothing in the world soothes the aching spirit more than chicken stew. And when we need to soothe our aching bodies, too, these are the recipes to do the job. Now that most of the snow has melted off the garden, we're out there on weekends tidying up, pruning and trimming and hauling debris to the compost pile. At the end of a long day of yard work, a nice hot chicken stew is most welcome indeed. Use your slow cooker when you can, as Jeanette did in this Crock Pot Jamaican spiced chicken stew, from Jeanette's Healthy Living, but remember that all of these recipes can be made on the stovetop as well.
