4 cups gluten-free chicken broth

-Sundried Tomato Drop Biscuits

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Set out a 9×13-inch baking dish.

2. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large saucepan or stockpot. Add onions and cook about 3 minutes. Add carrots, celery, sweet potato and mushrooms and sauté until vegetables take on color, about 5 minutes.

3. Add broth, chicken, thyme, parsley, sage, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Simmer 20 minutes uncovered, reducing liquid. Adjust flavor with salt and pepper, if desired. Remove bay leaf before continuing.

4. Mix together water and potato starch. Mixture will be thick but you should be able to stir it. Add half this mixture to the chicken stew and simmer until stew thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Add more to achieve desired thickness. Stew will continue to thicken when baked in the oven.

5. Transfer stew to a 9×13-inch baking dish. Space uncooked Sundried Tomato Drop Biscuits evenly over top of stew. Place dish in preheated oven and bake until biscuits are light golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes.
