Here in the South, Brunswick stew came from left-over meat and what vegetables are on hand. Variations include ham, poultry, beef and wild game. This recipe is a basic chicken version you are likely to find at any church supper.

I am so happy to find this recipe. You are so right about finding this basic chicken recipe at any church supper or fund raiser. Our church cooks this basic recipe for over 400p people and to try to break it down to 10- 12 servings is just to much. My cousin in AZ wanted me to send him my recipe so now I can send him yours and I will be using it also. Oh, I'm from the south to. NC to be exact. Thanks again. BCD
