Oh my, this was good. I subbed parsnip for the turnip, since that is our favorite root veggie, and it permeated the stew with such a wonderful flavor. I used fresh thyme, less salt, and made this in the crock pot with the chicken breasts uncut (I still sauteed the leeks and added the pureed part and greens toward the end of cooking). Fed 3 as a very yummy main course.
This was truly delish, and DH was most emphatic that this one should be given a 5! I loved the use of turnips here. I used an onion instead of leeks, some green beans and zucchini instead of all carrot, and spinach for the greens because I had them on hand. Served with Cornbread, this made for a perfect meal on a chilly winter night. Thanks for posting! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
