    leann2800's Note:

    Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: Red Pepper and Bacon, Saffron flavored Yellow chicken and potatoes, and Green Onion and Cilantro make a colorful traffic light stew your family will stop in their tracks for. When I was growing up, two of my favorite dishes were Cuban Bean Soup and Chicken with Yellow Rice. This dish was inspired by those 2 dishes. I took my favorite ingredients from both and merged the meals. I hope you enjoy it!

      I wanted to try the recipe after spotting your entry in the contest. I elected to use tumeric instead of saffron and only one bag of the potatoes. I ended up with a colorful and tasty soup rather than a stew, but the recipe was enjoyed by the family. The mention of 2 teaspoons vegetable oil cooking spray I took to mean either/or so used cooking spray. We like cilantro so I garnished the bowls with additional amounts before serving. I think additional veggies could easily be added if desired. Thank you for sharing your creative entry! I'm glad I tried it. Made for Spring 2011 Pick A Chef.

      Very nice quick and tasty dish! I used tumeric instead of the saffron and a green bell pepper instead of the green onions, as those were things I had on hand. My potatoes were very soft at the end of the 20 minute cook time but there was still quite a bit of broth left, so mine came out more of a soup than a stew, but it was yummy none the less - thanks for sharing your recipe!
