This place really needs to have half stars, because we really mean to give this 3.5 stars, not 3. We didn't have anything really to complain about, but nothing to rave about, either. I have to say that I love sweet potatoes in stews, and the apple juice was lovely. It just . . .I don't know. I wish I could give a more glowing review. It was really nice with the homemade rye bread I served. Thank you for posting. Made for ZWT4.
I just made this stew tonight. I used fresh tomatoes and greenbeans and substituted yams instead of sweet potatoes and it came out incredible! I was surprised how thick the cider sauce got. And, its so healthy...totally guilt free! Only drawback...the prep takes a bit longer than 20 minutes if you use all resh veggies.
We really enjoyed this dish Toni. The chicken was tender, the perfectly cooked vegetables blended together beautifully, enhancing the subtle cider sauce. I also loved the addition of the fresh basil and ginger. I added a little coarse sea salt.
I love sweet potatoes in stews and this is a very nice one., The string beans and basil (fresh from the garden) give it color and flavor and the ginger is a good addition. Thanks, Toni!
