VERY nice stew, and so easy to make too! I used baby carrots and just tossed them in whole, apple juice instead of cider, and red wine vinegar instead of cider vinegar; all of these substitutions were made because of ingredients I had on hand. I doubled the apples as suggested, and for the chicken I actualy just cubed up some chicken that was left over from yesterday's supper. Everything came out very tender (even the chicken, which I was afraid would be too dry after essentially being cooked twice), and the taste is absolutely to die for. I think this recipe will definitely be going into a regular rotation here. Thank you for a great recipe!

I made this tonight. I substituted regular potatoes with sweet potatoes. I used boiling onions in the bottom of the slow cooker. It IS bland like other reviews said, I added 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to spices mix. Very delicious, will do again! Needs toasted bread with it !

This is a Taste of Home recipe. I used one apple per the original recipe. The stew was very chunky with just a little broth. I think it could stand more broth with a little thickener. Seasoning was just right for my taste.
