Spring-Thyme Chicken Stew Recipe

Spring-Thyme Chicken Stew Recipe

During a long winter (and spring), my husband and I were in need of something warm, comforting, and bright. This chicken was the perfect thing. It fills the house with the smell of home when Mom would make chicken soup, with a little something extra. —Amy Chase, Vanderhoof, British Columbia
