A stewing chicken is a hen. It is larger than your average fryer because of its age when it is killed. Because of its age, the muscles are tougher than the a young fryer hence why they call them stewing chickens. For the meat to become tender, it must be slow cooked or boiled till the meat begins to fall off the bone.
