I Want You At the Moment I Feel Blue

Chicken Stew with Potatoes and Green Beans
We're in it now, snow storms, bitter cold temps, and hearty stews.  Nothing quite says winter like a vat of root vegetables in thick broth.  Chicken thighs with russet and Yukon gold potatoes gave this mixed medley it's moxie.  At the end, a little yogurt slurry to add some body and a package of frozen green beans.   
I remember watching in judgement years ago as Semi-homemade host Sandra Lee would bring out all the store bought packets and cans to add to her dishes.  But once in a while, I will add a 1/2 a packet of Ranch mix as I did here to the yogurt, as well as some chicken bouillon.  You have to watch your salt content with these shortcuts but within reason, they are great ideas, as are frozen vegetables.
