This is a really good, easy recipe that can be put together from mostly pantry ingredients. From Penzey's catalog (they sell great herbs and spices).

Northwoods Chicken Stew
Serves 4-5
Prep: 20 min; cooking time:1 hour (or so they say- close to accurate)

1 tablespoon butter
1 med or 1 large red onions, chopped
2 tablespoons Northwoods (or Northwoods Fire*) seasoning
1 cup carrots, cut into coins- about 3
4 med potatoes, cut into bite-sized chunks
1 whole bone-in chicken breast, cut into 2 pieces
1 tsp balsamic or red wine vinegar
0.25 tsp sugar
2 tablespoon flour
2 bay leaves
4 cups chicken broth (low-sodium), or 3.5 cups and 0.5 cups red wine
black pepper to taste, pref fresh ground

In a large pot with a lid, melt the butter over low heat. Add the onions and the Northwoods seasoning. cover and cook for 5 min.

Add carrots and potatoes (the recipe says peeled, but we don't.) Cover and cook another 5 min.

Add chicken, vinegar, and sugar, cover, and cook over medium heat for 15 min.

Push the pieces to the side of the pot, mix in the flour until it's smooth. Add wine (if using- simmer it until the alcohol burns off if so), bay leaves, and chicken stock, stirring until smooth. Cover and simmer 30 min, stirring occasionally, keeping it at a simmer.

Remove chicken. Remove skin and bones, and cut meat into bite-sized pieces.

Taste and add pepper if desired.

Simmer 5 more min and serve.

*We used N'wds Fire- we love the stuff!- and it made the soup spicy-hot.
