>It’s really Moroccan Chicken Stew from Campbell’s Kitchen. I saw this in a magazine, said to myself, “Well, we have all the ingredients we need in our pantry, why not?” Of course I made a few modifications, the main one being cutting the recipe down significantly. We were feeding three adults (Amigo was away at school), so I changed the 8 chicken thighs to 3 chicken breasts. The 2 red onions became 1 yellow onion rather than make another trip to the store. I imagine when summer comes the green pepper will be interchangeable with whatever peppers are ripe in the garden or at the Farmers’ Market. The Tablespoon of curry powder became a generous teaspoon instead. I made it in my cast iron Dutch oven (a birthday present). We served the spicy chicken stew over brown rice and pronounced it good.
