    Sackville's Note:

    Here's a healthy stew that you can make in one pot. For a vegetarian version just leave out the chicken and add another can of chickpeas instead. Quorn pieces are another good alternative, if you can get them.

      Oh, this was so wonderful. The combination of ingredients produced a well seasoned and spicy delicious stew. Perfect for fall. The smell was as good as the taste. Thanks, SG. Will take the left-overs for lunch.

      The stew turned out great but the prep time was way longer then I expected. Not a good dish to prepare on a week night (I thought I could throw it all together and let it simmer but it was more involved than that), but for a Saturday or Sunday meal when you have more time it is great! Perfect blend of spices and healthy veggies, and tons of leftovers that get better as they marinate in the fridge. Thanks, I will be making this again!
