In college, a classmate of mine shared her family's recipe for this delicious, filling and inexpensive stew—perfect for a foodie student on a budget. It also seems a bit like a magic trick because you don't add any broth or water, the stew creates its own tasty broth as it cooks.
You can use inexpensive cuts of chicken, like thighs, for this recipe or a whole chicken cut into 8 pieces. If you don't know how to cut up a chicken, don't worry! You can ask a butcher to do it. Even at chain supermarkets, you can select a chicken from the self-service case, bring it to the butcher counter, and ask them to cut it into 8 pieces for you. It's a free service, so take advantage.
Whatever cut you choose, make sure it's bone-in, because the bones are what make the rich broth. This is also one of those dishes that somehow tastes even better the next day, so make a big pot of it and enjoy the leftovers.
