Must be Grandma Viv's.


  1. Soak lima beans overnight in 3 cups cold water; drain. Place beans in bottom of a heavy pot.
  2. Brown onion in oil. Layer onions on top of beans.
  3. Mix salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder with a small amount of water, just enough to make a thick paste. Smear this paste on the chicken parts and layer them on top of onions.
  4. Add enough water to just cover. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook about 1 hour. Serve with rice.
