Chicken Brunswick Stew (Paula Deen)

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by SharleneW

I'm a fan of Paula Deen of the Food Network--good food on the table quick. It looked on TV, but when I set out to make it myself, I wasn't sure of this list of ingredients, not being from the south myself. I had never heard of Brunswick Stew, but after trying it, I'll definitely be making it again.

Sounds really good, but I leave off the rice and add diced potatoes and baby lima beans to the stew. Serve with crackers or cornbread.
