Chicken Stew with Potatoes

When my kids were younger we made a lot of dishes like this Creamy Chicken Stew with Potatoes.

They fondly called these dishes “Sip” which stood for “Sh*t in a pot”.

It described a lot of my recipes from that time. No recipe and just using ingredients that I had on hand.

Those dishes were one of the reasons why I started my blog.

My daughter would ask how I’d made a certain dish that she’d grown up eating.

When I told her I just thrown this and that in a pan she got a little exasperated and asked why in the heck didn’t I write these recipes down?

How in the heck was she supposed to make it?
