Chicken and Sweet Potato Stew

There is nothing like gathering around the table with your family and enjoying a delicious dinner. During the winter, when the sun goes to bed early and the chill sets in, having a nice warm stew warms you right up. This recipe takes a little bit of prep time, and the longer it simmers, the more flavorful it is! Day two leftovers are even more amazing. The lean chicken provides satiating protein, and the carrots and sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamins. Delicious and healthy!
