I was given a recipe for Brunswick Stew over 50 yrs ago. This is the closest I've seen, except it called for Bacon or Salt pork cut in bite size pieces to taste. it is even better.

This is a thick and tasty stew, although it is not like the spicier, more flavorful Brunswick stew you find here in Georgia. I simmered the chicken in one cup of water according to the recipe in my TOH cookbook.

I've been using this recipe for over 20years. It is by far one of the best stews I've ever had. It's extremely easy to prepare. It has a very good flavor. Definitely a hearty stew.
