I was craving stew. Not the one that comes to mind when you see the word, the kind with big hunks of chewy, tough beef that simmers for hours on your stove while the vegetables turn to mush. When my Mom made Beef stew I would eat the vegetables and leave the meat. Maybe that’s why I’m not a big lover of beef or pork. Unless it’s classic Italian-girl fare like a meatball or sausage.
No, not your Mama’s stew! I meant this kind of stew. Stew with hunks of sweet, meaty vegetables and tender chicken in a creamy, herb broth flavored with spicy black pepper; sweet thyme and sage. A warm, steamy bowl that will chase the chill out of your bones; warm your tummy and nourish the craving you didn’t even know you had.
½ cup heavy cream or whole milk milk
