Brunswick Stew

Donna Brown


This is an old, old recipe that came out of a church cookbook and I have made this for years. I definitely use the chicken, have never tried the squirrel or rabbit, but when this was made at church functions to sell, they made it in a big iron kettle outside and used wild game. (If the chicken is a large, I only use one or use several chicken breasts. If I have butter beans on hand I'll add some in at the same time I add the corn, also.)
