Well, after having seen many Southern recipes for Brunswick stew with all kinds of added domestic and wild meats, I just tweeked some for our taste. I am using only chicken because then this is kind of healthy-hence the "light" part. LOL
I love my Southern girls, don't get me wrong! I LOVE many Southern dishes and enjoy them with family. Heck my oldest granddaughter is now a resident of Alabama due to marrying perhaps the most handsome man in the entire state - Roll Tide Roll!!
See if you like this kinda, almost, not the same but maybe pretty tasty version!
Enjoy!
