Moroccan Chicken Stew

The theme for Monday posts in January is Stew.

I love stew.

It’s easy to make and easy to make enough for more than 1 meal.

The meat, vegetables, and flavors can vary according to taste and mood.

Stew is, by definition, (WiKi): a combination of solid food ingredients that have been cooked in liquid and served in the resultant gravy. A stew needs to have raw ingredients….

The herbs and spices can be anything you like.

  1. I love stews. Mine are never quite the same twice. But I do make enough so we can have at least two meals plus one lunch for hubs. Chicken, beef, venison, pork, doesn’t matter. They’re all yummy.

    • Stew is like soup – one just makes it with whatever…. We ate a lot of chicken stew when we were both working in the U.S. – whoever got home first got it started and let is simmer.
