Spicy Southeast Asian Chicken and Squash Stew
Beau Gustafson

Second Runner-Up: Spicy Southeast Asian Chicken and Squash Stew

Our Second Runner-Up credits her mother's Filipino home cooking as the inspiration behind this rich, creamy, coconutty stew, infused with the full flavor of chicken thighs and a refreshing heat.

"When I saw the ingredients in the Market Basket Challenge, I knew I had to adapt them into a Southeast-Asian-inspired stew that was healthy, flavorful and comforting―with a little bit of heat. This is a little bit spicy, but one can tone it down by backing off on the hot chili peppers and ginger a bit." ―Jasmin Baron, Livonia, NY
