Brunswick Chicken Stew

A Chicken stew picture and name caught my attention while I was reading news. When I looked the method it seemed like a one pot meal. This stew is basically meat with lot of vegetables in it. You may say then it is soup, why call it stew. The difference is stew is much thicker than the soup. It's usually eaten with bread or with rice. It's famous in southern part of US. Original recipe called for squirrels or rabbits it seems! :o) From the original recipe I adapted to make it little more Indianized. It turned out great, it's going to be my one pot meal savior! Its power packed with proteins, vitamins and minerals.

Prep Time: 15 min | Cooking Time: 45 min| Serves: 4

Adapted from - My Recipes

Bell pepper - 1 cup chopped
Onion - 1 cup chopped
Green Spring Onions - 4 springs - Chopped
Olive Oil - 1 tbsp.
All-Purpose Flour - 1 tbsp.
Chicken - 1 lb - cut into 1/2 inch pieces
Water - 2 cups (You can use veggie or chicken broth)
Canned Tomato - 8 oz.
Dried Thyme - 1 tsp.
Chili powder - 2 tsp.
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp.

Corn - 1 cup (I used Frozen corn, thawed)
Baby Lima Beans - 1 cup (I used Frozen, thawed)
Garlic - 2 cloves (mined)
Lime juice - 1 tsp.

Method of Preparation:
~ Heat little oil in a wide pan and add bell pepper, stem portion of green onions and onion. Cook for 5 minutes.
~ Clean chicken. Combine flour and chicken in a bowl. Toss it to coat well.
~ Add the remaining oil and chicken to the pan. Roast chicken for 5 minutes until they are lightly browned.
~ Add water or broth and bring it to a boil. The gravy will start thickening. Takes about 15 to 20 minutes

    What you may not know is the amount of education and strict standards carpenters must qualify for to be considered as professionals, especially in Canada.
    In case fire or explosion does occur, immediately smother the fire with a thick blanket or non-flammable material to remove oxygen since fire cannot be sustained in the absence of this element.
    I prefer to use particle board because it is less expensive than plywood and
    works just as well.
