This isn’t your traditional chicken stew recipe. Feel free to use either turkey or lean ground beef in this recipe. Either will create a delicious meal. Easy to make and easy to enjoy with the family after a hard day. Especially if there is a chill in the air or you feel like you are fighting a cold! With all of the antioxidants in this recipe, it would be hard for those cooties to hang around to bug you after one bowl.
