This is a fabulous way to use Thanksgiving leftovers. Use leftover turkey instead of chicken. Added a few diced apples for fun! This stew is a family favorite!
I made this for a family dinner last weekend. Chicken Cider Stew made a regular appearance in our home when I was growing up, and my entire family was incredible pleased when I brought it to the dinner table. We added bacon to our recipe, but otherwise followed the instrctions. It will continue to be a fall regular in my home.
I went back and forth on whether or not to make this for dinner with my Grandparents... but I am very happy with my decision! It was simple, turned out deliciously, and as odd as the combination of chicken and sweet potatoes sounded to me, it was quite pleasant. Served with saltine crackers, french style green beans, and Pumpkin Pudding for dessert! Thanks :)
This was SO delicious! I took a shortcut with the chicken by browning the breasts whole, then chopped them into chunks (worked out great). I also used a combo of freshly chopped orange/red tomatoes. I also added a bit of freshly ground pepper like the other reviewer. The apple cider makes the most wonderful tasting broth! My husband and daughter(who don't like sweet potatoes) tried some with saltines and said they liked it, too (he had two bowls). The sweet potatoes are not strong in this dish and reminded me more of carrots in a chicken and noodle soup. Thanks GothicGranola, for posting! Roxygirl
I thought this was delicious. It came together easily as a weeknight, afterwork dinner, and the leftovers were even more tasty the next day. The only thing I added were a few turns of fresh black pepper.
