This is a great chicken stew. I first had it at the local apple festival,I tried my best to replicate the flavor.

you cant simmer the chicken and veggies for 3 hours ......your chicken will have no flavor ....veggies will turn to mush....removing chicken to debone is an absolute mess...make your stock first then add veggies....simmer no more then 30 min.
