Country Chicken Stew

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

This is one of my husband's recipes. He came up with it after coming in from the herb garden with a handful of fresh herbs. I like it. I hope he goes out there again today! ;) (Prep time does not include time to putter around in the garden)

Although we feel this is more of a soup rather than a stew, it's very tasty and flavorful all-the-same. We made this as written, adding some baby corn as well. This dish is very simple and quick to prepare, and all the fresh herbs give it a really nice flavor.
