Suitable for any VitaClay Model!

On a chilly day I crave something substantial, warm and filling. My family will eat anything as long as it tastes good, so it's up to me to ensure the meals I create are healthy and nutritious, and that they taste great so my family will eat them!

This chicken and bean stew really bursts with flavors: the vegetables and spices bring out the flavors of the beans, and the chicken adds a lot of substance and juiciness. My family loves it--they all want seconds! Try this spicy chicken and bean stew in your VitaClay cooker, and you'll know exactly what I mean!
