Creamy Italian Chicken Stew

The single digit temperatures that blew in last week had me wanting something warm, rich, and comforting. I threw this together in a matter of minutes thanks to having a package of Costco’s pulled rotisserie chicken on hand. This stew was so easy to make and the whole family loved it. It will probably become a new week night staple during the cold weather months in our house.
