This lovely French Chicken Stew recipe is a weekend favorite of mine. On a Friday night on my home from work I’ll pick up the ingredients and cook the stew up on Saturday morning. The stew will last all weekend! The sauce is reminiscent of a creamy tomato soup and has a slight sweet taste. Adjust the amount of apple juice to your personal taste.
If you have any sauce left over after the chicken and potatoes are long gone, just freeze the remaining sauce for later use. The sauce is also great over cooked rice or as a dipping sauce with fried zucchini.
A flavorful stew that cooks up quickly and taste even better the day.

- 1 tablespoon butter

Check chicken with a meat thermometer to make sure chicken is thoroughly cooked.
