Chicken Stew

I’ve been making this chicken stew it seems forever! This is the perfect winter supper dish, although I make it year round. If you asked me to name some of my favorite comfort foods, this would definitely be included. Its sort of like chicken pie over mashed potatoes. Its so easy to make and virtually impossible to mess up.
