SERVES: 8-10




  • Bring 2 quarts water and chicken to a boil in a Dutch; reduce heat and simmer 40 minutes or until tender.
  • Remove chicken and set aside. Reserve 3 cups broth in Dutch oven. (Reserve remaining broth for other uses.).
  • Pour lima beans and liquid through a wire-mesh strainer into Dutch oven. Reserve beans; add tomato to Dutch oven.
  • Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; cook stirring often, 40 minutes or until liquid is reduced by one-third.
  • Skin, bone, and shred chicken. Mash reserved beans with a potato masher.
  • Add chicken, mashed and frozen beans, potato, and onion to Dutch oven. Cook over low heat, stirring often, 3 hours and 30 minutes.
  • Stir in corn and remaining ingredients; cook over low heat, stirring often, 1 hour.
  • (Optional) 30 minutes before it is done I whisk the stew with an electric mixer for a more traditional smooth texture. I like to leave some chunks.
