Chipotle Chicken Stew

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by LARavenscroft

This was originally a recipe for the crock pot. I tend not to use my crock pot too often for meals because I'm away from home for more than 10 hours and I don't have one that can be programmed. I've adapted it to be made on the stove top, but you could still make it in the crock pot. Just put all the ingredients in your crock pot and cook on low for 7-8 hours (or 3 1/2-4 hours on high).

This is so yummy! We loved it. I used breast instead of thighs only because DH doesn't eat anything but the breast. I also added about 1/2 cup frozen corn like another reviewer suggested. This stew warms your tummy on a cold rainy day. Thanks for posting. :)
