Skillet Chicken Stew

 Skillet Chicken Stew
Meet the Cook: It's been 20 years now since I adapted this from a recipe for beef stew. We like it so much that, in all that time, I have never changed any ingredients or amounts - unless it was to double them! Our home's on a river, and my husband, our three boys - 12, 10 and 9 - and I enjoy camping and boating. -Valerie Jordan, Kingmont, West Virginia
