    Helpful hint:

    To cut the amount of saturated fat in these dishes by half, remove the skin from the chicken pieces and spatchcock after cooking and discard. To remove more fat from the stew, refrigerate it overnight and then scoop off all the solidified fat the next day. Reheat the stew and serve.
