This recipe was in our local paper (Pittsburgh). It sounded good so we gave it a try. Anyone looking for an alternative to pasta should give this a try. I’m not a big fan of cilantro so I omitted it and used all parsley instead. I didn’t have cans of chicken broth handy and easily substituted chicken bullion. We really enjoyed it.

The "stew" taste delicious, is easy to make, and the addition of the fresh parsley and cilantro really give it a wonderful flavor. Two problems - the broth is more soup-like and maybe this should be renamed to reflect that, and I think you meant to say add white wine, not red. My chicken turned PINK and the broth is very red - not like the picture at all. Still VERY tasty, just would change the wine next time....

This was so healthy and delicious, a wonderful combination of flavors. We loved it. I could not find smoked chicken, so I marinated a chicken breast in liquid smoke per label directions, cooked it in the microwave, diced it up and it worked just fine. This recipe is going in "my favorites file".

This is one of the best stews I have ever made or eaten! I used kidney and borlotti (white) beans and upped the red wine a bit. As others had a problem with consistency I used a bit less stock and simmered it until it was nice and thick. Served with a side of cous-cous which was a nice compliment, made it heartier but didn't overpower the stew. Can't wait to make this in winter, I will remember it.

A really good, tasty, easy recipe. I didn't have parsley and used spicy italian sausages instead of smoked chicken, also used a chicken stock cube and more wine instead of a can of chicken broth. Oh, and it made a lot so my pot was too small, I had to transfer it all to a large casserole dish and bake it (covered) for an hour.

We did not like this at ALL. We threw out the pot. No flavor, looked disgusting. Even when we added salt (which it sorely needed) it was unsavable.
