The "stew" taste delicious, is easy to make, and the addition of the fresh parsley and cilantro really give it a wonderful flavor. Two problems - the broth is more soup-like and maybe this should be renamed to reflect that, and I think you meant to say add white wine, not red. My chicken turned PINK and the broth is very red - not like the picture at all. Still VERY tasty, just would change the wine next time....



This recipe was in our local paper (Pittsburgh). It sounded good so we gave it a try. Anyone looking for an alternative to pasta should give this a try. I’m not a big fan of cilantro so I omitted it and used all parsley instead. I didn’t have cans of chicken broth handy and easily substituted chicken bullion. We really enjoyed it.

This was so healthy and delicious, a wonderful combination of flavors. We loved it. I could not find smoked chicken, so I marinated a chicken breast in liquid smoke per label directions, cooked it in the microwave, diced it up and it worked just fine. This recipe is going in "my favorites file".
