Growing up, this chicken stew was a regular Sunday dinner, which was always served in the dining room. Sundays were always very special because it was the only day of the week that the whole family sat together for the noon day meal and shared our stories of the previous week.

  1. Use a black iron or other heavy pot. Put oil in pot, add flour and stir over medium high heat until roux turns a deep golden brown. Add onions and cook until edges begin to brown. Season chicken with salt and pepper, add to roux mixture. Cook until chicken begins to brown off and roux is a dark brown color. Be careful not to burn the roux. stir in garlic, celery and bell pepper, being careful not to break apart the chicken.
