      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.

      Fantastic stew, even my fussy eater son loved it and ate all the onions which he has always HATED! Think this will turn into one of my regulars, thanks.

      Wow! Great stew. I added a bit more hot sauce (personal preference). It smelled so wonderful while it was cooking--I admit I snuck a couple of spoonfuls of sauce before it was done. Thank you for a great recipe! Made for ZWT4
