I told my husband to get on this site and find something for us to make for dinner. This is what he came up with. WOW!!! What powerful and intense flavor. Your stew has a very hearty and savoury flavor that kept us coming back for more. Thank-you Nurse Di. This is going to be something we will make over and over again.
I was tired of the same old stew with potatoes and carrots, so when I saw this recipe I thought I'd give it a try. I don't really care for bell peppers and chicken is just alright and my boyfriend doesn't really care for stews or sausage but there was something about this recipe. I'm so glad I tried it, it was INCREDIBLE, even my BF said it was a keeper! The only thing I changed was I substituted a TBS of Cayenne pepper for the paprika (personal preference). If you haven't tried this recipe you absolutely have to! next time I think I am going to add some more broth and some small pieces of pasta
WOW!!! I am a Cajun, and THIS is Cajun cookin' at it's best!! I just wish I could give it more than 5 stars. The only change I made was a personal preference. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into thirds. Next time, I'm doubling this one so I will have plenty frozen up for extra meals. Thanks, NurseDi for another winner!!!
