Mediterranean Chicken Stew


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
