  • Reviews

  • “This was such a delicious meal!! So easy to prepare and all in one pan. I kept to the ingredients exactly although I whizzed the tomatoes in the procesor(son doesn’t like lumpy! tomatoes). Didn’t need to add cornflour, it was thick enough. Thanks so much for posting. This is one that will be cooked again and again and again……”

  • “I found this to be a top rate recipe.My DH and I thought it to be an incredible mix of flavors. Will make again for sure. I did add cornflour for thickness and it went well with crusty rolls. Next time I may add celery. Well done, Inez!”

  • “The BEST chicken stew I have ever had.I added some rutabaga and parsnips to it.Excellent:)”

  • “A very nice stew indeed.The aroma of bay leaf and thyme took me back to when I was a kid.My mum used to make something similar.I let it simmer for longer as I do with all stews.They seem to have a richer flavour that way.My two year old doesn’t like stews but I put it in a blender for him and turned it into soup.He loved it!”

  • “DELICIOUS!!!!! And oh soo easy!!!!!! I doubled the Thyme, garlic and Bay Leaf, and used a can tomato’s with garlic and onion (it was all I had).This is a definite keeper.”

  • “Excellent recipe – I modified it a bit to include two cans of diced tomatoes and two cans of chicken broth.My family loved it!This recipe is a keeper!”

  • “Another keeper Inez!I added about 1/2lbs of fresh green beans and I simmered it a little longer than 30 min.Whole family loved it.I was planning to serve over homemade biscuits,but I burned them so we had to do with white rice,it was still nummy,nummy.Thanks for another great recipe!”

  • “Delicious! I added garlic when sauteing chicken and I added frozen mixed veggies and mushrooms. Everyone raved. “

  • “This was a quick, easy meal that was a hit with my picky husband and even pickier One and Four Year Olds.Great on a snow day like today. Had to substitute Italian Seasoning b/c I was out of Thyme – but didn’t affect taste.I will keep it in my ‘comfort food’ stash – thanks!”

  • “My family loved this.Definitely a keeper!I did add cream of celery soup and turkey instead of chicken.Wonderful!!!!”

  • “The thing I like about this recipe is that you can make it a little different every time and it will still be delicious. This is a good one to clean out the frig with. I used about 3 cups of chicken meat because I needed to get rid of it. Just made the soup a little chunkier. I also threw in some chopped zucchini and frozen English peas at the last. Very yummy and a great flexible recipe. Thanks Inez.”

  • “I sauteed the chicken first with a little ginger and it added a whole new flavor to an already spectacular dish.The second time I made it, I threw in a little of every veggie in the house and was more generous with the spice… What a hit!!!Everyone’s asking for more!This one is definitely a keeper!!!”

  • “A 3 1/2 star rating would be more accurate. I will definitely make some changes the next time I make this.I only used half the thyme as that is not my favourite spice.I think a pinch of tarragon would be a great addition.I would definitely add chopped celery and rutabaga as well.”

  • “This is delicious! I made this for a friend who isnt in real good health and cannot get to the store real easily and I havent talked to him since I took it to him but before when I was putting it in a bowl to take there was a about 2 cups left over that would not fit in the bowl so we ate it and It is great. I am going to keep this recipe for the winter monthes. YUM! Thank you for posting it. Definitly a keeper.”

  • “This is so easy and very yummy. I used a can of tomatoes with herbs in it and left out the oil as I sprinkled in some dehydrated onions rather than saute fresh onion. I also added a sliced zucchini. I was surprised that this simple recipe was so good. I’ll be keeping this one to make again.”

  • “Very simple and easy to make.The only issue I had was the prep having to dice potatoes, but no big deal.The taste is fairly mild, but delicious nonetheless.I added some corn starch to thicken it up and served it over rice.I’m going to try a variation and add some curry to it.”

  • “Fabulous, in a word! I used chicken thigh meat because it has so much more flavor than breast, and with the following tweaks – the stew was perfection. Coated meat in 1/4 c. flour 1/2 t. each salt and pepper and sauteed in the oil on med. heat with the chopped onion and 2 chopped celery stalks for about 5 min. Added the garlic during the last minute. Then dumped in the tomatoes, chicken broth, seasonings and veggies (plus fresh green beans) and simmered on low for an hour. It was cold and rainy yesterday and this, with some french bread, this was a most wonderful meal. :)”

  • “Very delicious!My husband has been fighting cold so his appetite isn’t that great.I made this as instructed, but used butter/vegetable oil combination to cook onions (& garlic), added cooked ground turkey, oregano & parsley.Rather than using buillion, I used 4 cups of homemade chicken stock.I thickened the stew with 3 tablespoons of wheat flour.Rather than using canned diced tomato, I added 3 small hot house tomatoes. Added green bell pepper, carrot, and 5 small red potatoes instead of pasta/rice.Very delicious.”

  • “This recipe was great!!!I followed the recipe exact with the exception of adding 8 oz of sliced fresh mushrooms and about a half a pound of fresh green beans I had on hand.I also added cornstarch for added thickness.I will definately make this again.Thanks Mizznezz.”

  • “MizzNezz, you sure are an awesome chef!This is simple and healthy as well, thank you!I followed the lead of some of the reviewers and put fresh chopped tomatoes, the chicken broth I got the fat free sodium free (just to cut out the sodium)….but I have to admit that it needed a tad of salt, but I’ll leave that to the individual at the table.The stew is so comforting, very simple to make, and I will be enjoying this in the future as I am tonight!I am getting over a nasty virus and this hit a home run with me, thanks again.It looks like a recipe that would be good to ‘add what you have’ and it will be just as good. Thanks again for another wonderful recipe!”
