"This is a very easy recipe to make brunswick stew. I have had it with pork, chicken and beef and you can easily do that in this recipe. Just use equal amounts of the meats instead of all chicken. (I save pieces of roasts, pork and beef, and leftover chicken in a baggie in the freezer simply for this stew.) I know you will really enjoy this southern favorite! "

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



A wonderful stew, the aroma alone makes for five stars! Made half a recipe but suspect I should have gone with the full recipe, thinking this one would freeze well for those times one needs a meal in a hurry. Other than not having Lima beans on hand I made as posted. Temperatures were really dipping here when I made this - served with a fresh loaf of bread made for a perfect evening meal. Looking to make it with beef next time - and yes there will be a next time!
