Chicken stew with sausage and mustard

This is the last recipe I made for the Mystery ingredient Bloggers Showcase contest. By the end of the 3 days/10 mustard recipes my family was DONE, so this has a lighter mustard flavor and they liked it okay, but I want to make it again to see if we’d all like it even better now that we’ve recovered from mustard overdose! The chicken thighs are perfect in stew.

The chicken thighs are perfect in stew, they just fall apart after being in the crock pot! I like how easy it is, using the slow cooker, and how great the flavors came together! You can substitute chicken broth for the cider if you don’t want your stew to have a sweet flavor to it. Personal preference.

a chicken thighs and sausage stew with some strong flavors, the mustard creates a unique flavor that is surprising and delicious
