This hearty flavorful stew holds well and is wonderful the next day. I often mix this up before work and dinner is ready when we get home.

Melt butter in a large saucepan/soup pan over medium heat. Add the onion, potatoes, carrots garlic and celery. Saute for 10 minutes until golden. Stir frequently so they don't stick. Cut the chicken up into 1-inch pieces and add to the hot pan. Sear on all sides and cook for 5 minutes. Slice up the smoked sausage into 1/4-inch pieces and add to pot. Mix in and cook another 5 minutes. Place all ingredients in a large crockpot and add together the tomatoes, marinara sauce, chicken broth and seasonings. Stir well. Turn heat to low, cover and let cook for 5-6 hours or until vegetables are fork tender and broth has thickened. Reseason to taste. Serve with hunks of hot cornbread.

  • Excellent recipe. I tweaked this recipe a bit by adding sliced corn cobs and whole green beans (both frozen). Check out the pix I submitted. Absolutely delicious and like the recipe contributor said, its even better the next day.
