Ingredients: 3 to 4 slices lean bacon, diced
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
pinch ground cayenne pepper
3 1/2 to 4 pounds chicken pieces (1 broiler fryer)
3 medium onions, thinly sliced
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 cups lima beans, fresh or frozen, cooked
2 cups corn kernels, fresh or frozen, thawed
1/2 cup okra, sliced, fresh or frozen
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
Directions: In a large skillet, cook the diced bacon until fat is rendered. Remove the bacon bits with slotted spoon and refrigerate until stew is nearly done. Combine flour, salt, pepper and cayenne; dredge the chicken. Brown the chicken in the rendered fat with the onions, turning pieces to brown on all sides. Add 1-1/2 cups boiling water, the tomatoes, cayenne pepper and thyme to the slow cooker with chicken. Cover and cook Brunswick stew on LOW 6 to 8 hours. Add remaining ingredients, including reserved bacon; cover and cook Brunswick stew on HIGH for 30 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender.
