Homecookin' Southern Goodness

Brunswick Stew
I thought this might be good on a cold, rainy winter day like we were having last night.  So I whipped up some Southern Brunswick Stew by none other than the Southern Queen herself...Paula Deen!  I expected to be slaving over the stove for hours but it really was quite quick and simple!

Here is the recipe:


1 (2 1/2-pound) fryer chicken
1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, sweetened with 1/3 cup sugar
1 (16-ounce) can creamed corn
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon liquid smoke, available in grocery store
1 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper
Celery salt
Cooked rice, as accompaniment

In a large pot, place the chicken and enough water to cover chicken and bring to a boil. Cook chicken until meat falls off the bone. Drain the chicken and reserve 2 cups of stock. Remove the skin and bones and chop meat.
In a separate pot, mix the chicken and remaining ingredients. Simmer slowly for 30 minutes, stirring often to prevent sticking. Add a little bit of the stock if the stew becomes too thick. Serve stew over steamed rice.

and Wha - La!....Southern Goodness!


  1. Sounds really easy...I bet my husband would love that! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Yumm, that looks super tasty! It looks like there is lima beans in it though? And being the dork that I am I read it as "fryer chicken water" and thought "what in the world is fryer chicken water?" Haha! Duh... Anyway, I made a super similar soup to this on Tuesday night that I have scheduled to post this week, come visit!

    Thanks for sharing, I will definitely have to try this:)


  3. Oh yeah, I forget that I added in the lima beans because I thought they would add alittle more texture and deliciousness!

  4. Mmm..a nice warm stew sounds really good on this cold day. :)

  5. It looks sooo good, I ate cereal for dinner :( Maybe I will try this over the weekend!

  6. PS, I left something for you on my blog :)
