Romani Chicken Stew

Romani Chicken Stew

This Romani stew tastes better the longer you cook it on low temperature, as it really gives all those rich flavours time to unite. This stew is the epitome of a one-dish meal, thick and hearty, and all you'll need is a couple pieces of whole wheat bread for a finishing touch. Love your slow cooker?
