Chicken and bean stew is the ultimate comfort food with a delicious combination of flavors. It is like a stew and a soup combined. It is made with boneless skinless chicken breasts seasoned with salt, pepper, and oregano. The tomatoes and kidney beans are a welcomed addition, not to mention the onion and garlic. The great thing is it can be made in 30 minutes, which makes it a great midweek meal.
