We couldn't believe how much we love this stew! To save time and dishes, instead of serving with mashed potatoes, rice or pasta I cubed 3 small potatoes and added them along with the other ingredients. I also omitted the butter and used spray olive oil to cut down on the fat grams. We will certainly enjoy this one pot meal time and again!

This was very tasty, although I wouldn't quite call it "stew". It was more like soap loaded up with great ingredients. This would go well over pasta, served up with some crusty Italian bread. The taste was wonderful. I *did* make a some changes; I used four cloves of garlic instead of two; sliced up a stalk of celery and used two carrots (not too thinly sliced, more like 1/2" or so) instead of one. Another reason this didn't get a full five stars was prep/cook time. It is one of my biggest peeves when checking out recipes. IT took me longer, from start to finish, than the author's total time ~ about 45 minutes. Not a big deal, but when you want to have dinner on the table at a certain time, it's kind of frustrating. I will make this again and serve it over pasta next time!

It wasn't a bad recipe but i wouldnt call it a stew. The tomato base of this dish was way too much for my liking, and it took away the essence of the dish, which should be the chicken!
