When you feel the need for a hearty, meat and potatoes meal, this delicious Chipotle Stewed Chicken and Potatoes Recipe is a great choice.

It’s so easy to make, yet is incredibly satisfying and doesn’t taste at all like a Chicken Recipe.

Each large serving could easily be paired with some roasted zucchini or a light salad for a complete and very filling meal. My husband gobbled this up, which says a lot, as he is definitely a meat and potatoes kinda guy.

I love that this chicken recipe can be made quickly and with basic ingredients that I almost always have on hand. So it works in a pinch when I have little time to get a healthy meal on the table for a weeknight dinner. The smoky chipotle seasoning goes very nicely with the acidic tomatoes and the chicken breasts remain juicy and tender.
