    Adapted from the Culinary Institute of America. A family favorite that I have tweaked for our tastes. A great light summer supper!! This is also very tasty with shrimp in lieu of the chicken.

      Fantastic! This is so bright and fresh and lemony. We LOVED it!! Ours did not turn out like a stew, but we spent around 7-9 minutes reducing the chicken stock. It coated the peas perfectly.

      This was a very good and quick dinner! when i added the broth i thought it would coat the veggies and meat like a stir-fry sauce but it sorta came out like a rustic summertime vegetable stew, which was fine with us. we sopped up the delicious broth with homemade bread! thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper!
