Orange Rosemary Chicken Stew

This is a very aromatic stew and it fills the house with a wonderful orange and rosemary sent while cooking. It doesn’t take long to make. It takes about 10 minutes to prep and about 30 minutes to cook.

I had thawed out a package of chicken breasts to make two meals with. I posted the recipe yesterday of the first meal and this is the second meal. This stew can be made ahead and it taste better the next day. I was not sure how the potatoes would taste cooked with orange citrus added to the stew. This recipe turned out to be a very delicious meal. I heated it up to serve and added a green salad to go with it.

This recipe makes two large servings and very filling.

      I was looking through all my recipes and cookbooks for recipes to use what I had lingering on hand. This was one of the recipes I found. I have 2 dozen oranges right now. I thought why not give it a try. Thanks for your comment.

    mmm. . . the stew looks wonderful. I never would have thought of putting an orange in a stew.

      The orange is what caught my eye in this recipe. Sometimes we just get into a rut when cooking. It is fun to try something out of the box.

      Thanks for stopping in.
