Anson County Chicken Stew (Crock Pot)

Anson County Chicken Stew (Crock Pot) created by Sassy J

I have just divulged my own county's, my grandmother's, and my mother's most coveted soup recipe. (Lord, help me!) My most wonderful food memories stem from this soup. When I was a little girl, family and friends would gather at my parents house, bringing proportionately larger amounts of the listed ingredients (alas, usually fresh ingredients). Everyone would gather outside around the old iron washpot over a wood fire and prepare this stew with the ingredients they had brought. My mom and dad cooked the stew for hours as everyone visited. The results? Simply perfection. Nothing has ever tasted better to me on a cold Winter day.

    This is a great recipe! I made it easier by not cooking the chicken ahead of time. I just threw everything in slow cooker at once. I also added more rosemary, salt and pepper. I cooked it for 8 hours. About an hour prior to it being fully done I added fresh mushrooms and a bag of frozen peas. Yummers!! I served it with rosemary crackers. My husband inhaled it.

    I should have read the reviews for this before I made it - I was expecting a stew because of the name, not a very brothy soup (which is what it is). I thickened with cornstarch at the end, so not a big deal, but I still think the name is misleading. On top of that, I wasn't terribly fond of this. I followed the recipe to the letter but it just tasted like soupy corn to me, which isn't what I was going for. I doubt I will make it again, so sorry.
