Ultimate Chicken Stevie with Rice

For the lover of chicken, this is the ultimate chicken stew. I adore chicken and have been cooking for myself for years, so, over time, I’ve come up with some delicious, tried-and-tested recipes. This one incorporates a wide range [or diversity?] of flavors because I have been traveling my whole life, picking up tastes from all over the world. Now that I live in California, it’s wonderful, because I have access to pretty much any cuisine ingredients I can imagine. Hope you enjoy it.
