Chicken & Sweet Potato Stew
Eating Well - November 28, 2015

Here's a dinnertime warmer with a hint of spring's sweetness, designed for that day when you'd rather be outside raking the leaves from the garden, getting it ready for what's ahead, than slaving over the stove.

Chicken & Sweet Potato Stew

  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed, trimmed of fat
