Mediterranean Chicken Stew

Hearty and comforting, this stew can be found with slight variations all over the Mediterranean. I love this version because you can really taste how all the ingredients come together to create a unified, one-pot meal. If you like, serve with some crusty multigrain bread. — Maria Loi and Sarah Toland, The Greek Diet

Mediterranean Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Mediterranean Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
