Balkan-Style Chicken Stew

This dish brings me back when I was a little girl growing up in Bulgaria. My grandmother was a great cook and this one was my favourite. If you are looking for something quick and simple yet delicious, my version of her chicken stew will definitely satisfy your taste buds. It is our family’s favourite. The stew has a subtle sweet flavour that will make you ask for more!
