A Chicken Stew with an Asian Twist
The flavors in this hearty chicken stew are inspired by a traditional Chinese hot pot and include shiitake mushrooms, minced garlic, five-spice powder and a dash of red-pepper flakes, among other ingredients. The surprise addition is a quarter-cup of dark maple syrup, which adds a pleasing counterpoint to the spices.
