About this recipe: A delicious stew, which will be warmly welcomed during the cold winter months. Chicken is simmered with vegetables and apples in cider-flavoured chicken stock. This recipe will also work well with pork.
I had random ingredients in the cupboard and chicken breast and a can of cider in the fridge. Other than a few herbs missing and using leek instead of red onion, I used what I had, this tasted so good and my children loved it. A great way to use up what I have - 18 Feb 2016
I agree - it IS surprisingly delightful. I was unsure if we would like a chicken stew with apples and apple cider - I was concerned it would be too sweet. It was not. I did not use the parsnips because we don't care for them, but other than that, I made it as directed. The only negative is the color. With the white apples, potatoes, and chicken, the only other color was the orange carrots and a little bit of green (parsley). It would have more visual appeal if there were more green, maybe. Perhaps some spinach or green beans? I don't know if they would change the taste, though. Bottom line is that I will make it again. It's a keeper. - 27 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
WINNER! This was so delicious. Will make this again and again. Like another review said, the next time I'll add some green beans, just for more color. Thanks for this recipe. - 08 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
