I'm always on a quest for a one-pot dinner. (On that note, the Dave & Mike Cioppino CAN be a one pot meal too.) Thankfully, Food Network has a whole section on it. I settle on the very simple Dave Lieberman's Hearty Chicken Stew.
It takes about 2 hours from start to finish, but it makes a HUGE pot and well worth the cooking time. The broth, pre-seasoned, was sweet (from the carrots) and super duper tasty. More salt and pepper later, it was just perfect.
Another thing Dave didn't mention but I would add is when you're taking out the chicken to get shredded, fish out the thyme branches. Scrape the leaves back into the pot and discard the chewy stems.
