Reviewed chicken stew with biscuits

Nov 19, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This recipe was outstanding! I reduced the butter slightly in the stew, added about a tablespoon of fresh thyme, and used frozen biscuits to save a little time.

( I make scratch soups all the time - 3 quarts of water does not make 4-6 servings- I should have known better. ) I used top quality dried cranberry beans, pancetta and fresh herbs. Note that the "rave" reviews all significantly altered the recipe ( sub"
