Reviews for Creamy Chicken Stew
"Loved this! I did sub the peppers with fresh green beans cut up ( we can't handle the peppers ) and I didn't have any regular paprika and used smoked paprika. I was a little worried browning the chicken with its smell but this came out great! I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!"

"My husband refuses to eat this, but a couple years ago, I made it for my grandchildren. They enjoyed it. It could use more herbs."
"There should be a circle for Maybe. This is wonderfully creamy, but since I made it with homemade broth, it lacked chicken flavor. I resorted to two chicken bouillon cubes and put in half a small jar of poultry seasoning. I left out the green and red peppers. Perhaps McCormick's chicken base would have worked better."
