Slow cooker Brunswick stew recipe is perfect for winter meals, entertaining at home, or game day parties.
Today I’m sharing a classic Southern recipe that I grew up on. It’s a slow cooker Brunswick stew recipe made with chicken breast meat. I think the original stew is made with various small game meat like rabbit, but I’ll leave that version for the old-school crowd!
As I said, this is Southern cooking at it’s best. I think every small town in the South has held a fund raiser and sold Brunswick stew by the pint or gallon. I love the mix of vegetables and shredded chicken all blended together in a tangy tomato broth/sauce. It goes so well with fresh baked corn muffins served on the side.
Slow Cooker Brunswick Stew Recipe
- 20 oz. chicken breasts, skinned and boned
- 2 onions, chopped
- 4-5 medium potatoes, cut into bite size pieces
- 16 oz frozen Lima beans
- 2 – 14 oz cans cream-style corn
- 1 – 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
- 1 – 12 oz bottle smoky barbecue sauce
- 1 – 14 oz can chicken broth
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup butter, cut up
- 1/8 to 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons dry mustard
- 1 teaspoon Tabasco
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Place onion in slow cooker, and lay chicken on top. Add all remaining ingredients and give them a stir to combine (without disturbing the layer of onion and chicken).
Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or until chicken is tender. Remove chicken and shred it using 2 forks. Return chicken to stew and continue cooking on low for 2 hours.
Makes about 14 cups.
I also want to let you know that I’m working on getting some posts up soon, of our new house. I’ve been busy decorating and it’s finally starting to come together. I really hope you’ll enjoy the peek inside how we live, and maybe get an idea or two about decorating your home too.
Aside from interior decorating, there are so many things we still need to do to the outside, like build a deck and patio, plant a row of Leland cypress. All these will not only make our quality of life better but also add value to our home.
I hope you all have a good weekend. Cheers!
