Incredibly Amazing, Member Moira22star

I made this stew but used boneless chicken thighs instead of chicken breast, otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Thighs, because they are dark meat, get incredibly tender and fall apart. My family prefers ""soft chicken"" whenever possible. I will make this recipe countless times in the future. It is not too spicy at all -- the stew broth is mild for our family taste. But it is so well balanced with all the vegetables, and the potato thickens the sauce almost to a classic stew consistency. The chicken falls apart and also contributes to the thickness of the stew. I also recently lost my crock pot so I cooked it on a low gas flame for about 5 hours -- not the 9 recommended. Thank you so much for this delicious recipe. It is ultra satisfying, hearty, healthy and, like the recipe promised, puts together in a quick quick easy prep time of about 10-15 minutes.
