This smells so wonderful while it is cooking! I was worried about no directions for pulling the meat off the bones, but it just dissolved off while cooking and I pulled the bones and most of the skin out. (My son likes some skin!) I added salt and pepper when browning the chicken. I had to use all thighs. I couldn't fine quarters at the store this time. Delicious soup/stew and one I will make again. Thanks for sharing Mike!
