Chorizo chicken Potato Stew OverheadIt is technically Spring but given the temperatures around here, there is still plenty of time for a warm and comforting stew. Here is a slightly lighter version of a Spanish chorizo and potato stew. The recipe is very similar to a traditional stew but I have replaced some of the chorizo with chicken breast to reduce the fat. I also finished the stew with wilted spinach to sneak in a few more vegetables.
