Excellent! A delicious, easy, healthy, and budget friendly one-dish meal. I made it as written. The flavors blended nicely and it smelled wonderful while it was cooking. I cooked it on high for just under 4 hours and stirred it initially and then stirred one about half way through to blend everything and distribute liquid and had no problem with the chicken breasts drying out. UPDATE: I made this again and added red and green bell peppers and broccoli slaw to increase the vegetables and I doubled the spices except salt. Since I increased the vegetables I decided to add another can of diced tomatoes and that was a mistake because then it added too much liquid. I recommend not adding additional liquid even though it may look dry in the beginning because it makes its own sauce as it cooks. Also, this time it seemed the additional liquid diluted the spices as it was not as flavorful as the first time even though I doubled the spices this time. Next time I will add the additional vegetables but stick to 1 can of tomatoes and double the spices. It is a delicious recipe. If trying it for the first time I recommend following the recipe as written. UPDATE II: While eating leftovers of this recipe my husband declared this was the best dish I have made. So it is a winner.



A very flavorful and healthy meal that's ridculously easy to put together. Next time will cut up the sweet potatoes a little smaller so they cook at the same rate as the remaining ingredients.



Great balance of flavor. This is one of the only ways I like sweet potatoes. The only change I would suggest is switching to boneless skinless chicken thighs. Simmering breast meat for long periods of time makes the chicken dry. I get that this is a stew but if you make the recipe with thigh meat you will notice a major difference in the texture and flavor of the stew.
