When everyone is sick in the house I automatically think of chicken noodle soup. This time I wanted to change things around.
So I made them a chicken stew. Ohhhh came out fantastic. Very hardy, full of flavor. This stew will warm your belly during those cold days and give you some comfort when your sick.
