So tasty! The house smelled great while it was whole family loved it. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and omitted the red pepper. I also seasoned the chicken while it was cooking with salt and pepper, and added more salt (seasoned) and pepper to the stew after it had simmered. I thickened the stew with a little cornstarch/water mixture, and we ate it over white rice. I'll definitely make this again! Made for ZWT7.
