A few weeks ago, just about everyone I knew seemed to be sick.  My husband and my mother-in-law were in competition to see who could feel the worse.  I told them that I was going to come up with a new recipe that would cure all of their ailments.  It took a trip to the doctor for both of them to accomplish that, but this Hearty ChickenVegetable Stew was something they enjoyed eating.chicken stew, soups, winter meals

I started by cutting some boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins into bite sized cubes.  Heat olive oil in a large dutch oven, and brown the chicken.chicken stew, soups, winter meals
