This delicious Chicken and Mushroom Witches Stew is the perfect main course for my Halloween Themed Dinner Menu for Adults.
This recipe is part of the Halloween Menu Video I created for the Kin Community YouTube Channel. You can watch the full episode below.
I love this Chicken and Mushroom Witches Stew because it utilizes all the great fall flavors like wild mushrooms, roasted chicken and flavorful fresh rosemary. But it also looks a bit spooky like something a witch would serve out of her cauldron!
But no need to wait for Halloween! This is a great chicken stew recipe anytime of year!
