  6. Transfer the oven proof skillet (you can also transfer to a casserole dish if needed) to the oven, and cook in the preheated 375°F oven for 30 – 45 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and stir in the Lime Zest and Juice, mixing well. Top with the remaining chopped Coriander.

Notes

  • You can substitute the fresh tomatoes for a 15 oz can of diced tomatoes if preferred.
  • Serve this Potato Chicken Stew over Jasmine or Basmati Rice if desired. It’s also gorgeous served with Naan and the Indian Raita, the cucumber yogurt sauce.
