I’m always experimenting with new ways to make dishes that we tend to eat a lot of. Chicken stew is definitely on heavy rotation around here and I try to add different spices and flavors that will change it up a bit. Guyanese tend to cook a lot a stews served with rice and that’s pretty much my go to meals. In an effort to keep it fresh and exciting I try to think of new ways to cook the classic. In this Spicy Tomato Chicken Stew, the tomato and coconut milk are a winning combination and the boneless chicken thighs make it a quick meal. Served with a plate of rice, this is makes for one delicious and comforting meal. Enjoy!
