This is a wonderful stew that is perfect for the cool Fall weather. You can make this recipe ahead of time and freeze until ready to use. Just add all ingredients except chicken broth into ziploc bag. When ready to make just thaw overnight in fridge. Then in morning add to crockpot with chicken broth.
This recipe is also naturally gluten free which I love. I like to prepare it with Gluten Free Cornbread.
