Chicken Thief Stew

Recipe by TAHINAZ

Originally printed in Aunt Bee's Mayberry Cookbook, this hearty, tomato-based stew tastes a little like a mild chili with the smokey taste of fried chicken. Don't let the lima beans discourage you. They really do add to the favor. Variation: two pounds of beef maybe substituted for the chicken.
