This dish was named this way because it was created on homecoming weekend for many of the local colleges. It definitely falls under the category of “comfort food.” We call it a stew because it has a lot of solid ingredients, but it could also be considered a soup, as it is very liquid. Either way, it is very satisfying and tasty, and will be made again.
This recipe came about one night out of ingredients that were already in the house. We were hungry, but the store was closed. I thawed out some chicken pieces and quickly threw this together. It has since evolved a little and now has become a staple. It goes well with kale and mushrooms as a side dish, as the sauce tends to bleed over and the flavors augment each other. This a good easy dish, and is great on a cold night or anytime.
