I know I promised this a while back, after sharing with you what going to a southern chicken stew is like… but I’ve had a hard time nailing down an actual recipe! It seems that there isn’t exactly a recipe for chicken stew, everyone just kinda makes it his or her own way. But I can tell you that they all pretty much have the same ingredients:
- chicken (whole or cut up)
- chicken broth
- salt and pepper to taste
- Texas Pete hot sauce
I hate “recipes” like this, with no exact measurements. This Fall, when it’s chicken stew time again, I’ll have to sit and watch somebody make it and write down how much of this and that they are using!
But for now I can give you an idea:
Boil the chicken in water until tender. Remove any bones, skin, and fat from the chicken. Add some milk and flour to thicken. Stir in salt and pepper, and Texas Pete, to taste. Mix in chicken broth, and bring back to boil. Simmer until ready to serve.
There. You like that, huh? I know, it’s terrible… but that’s all I got!
Does anyone out there have a specific recipe for southern style chicken stew that they’d like to share?? Some measurements would really be helpful, for those like me who aren’t very good at getting “creative” in the kitchen!
