Mom’s Comforting Chicken Stew

Dish Description
This is a delicious, rich, creamy, and satisfying chicken stew that my mom makes when the weather is nippy out. Use more or less veggies to your liking if desired. I usually bake a homemade loaf of bread to dig in. This is comfort food at its best!

  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1/2 cup green peas
