Chicken Brunswick Stew

Saw this recipe featured on Coasta Genise and had to share.  Fall is in full swing and now is the perfect time for soups and stews.

This recipe reprinted with permission from Coasta Genise.


4-pound broiler chicken, cut in serving pieces
Salt & Pepper
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups chopped onions
1 cup chopped green or yellow bell pepper
2 cups chopped peeled fresh or canned plum tomatoes (I used canned diced tomatoes.)
1 cup white wine
2 cups chicken stock or water (I used water)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cups corn kernels (fresh, frozen, or canned) [I used frozen]
1 cup lima beans (fresh or frozen) [I used frozen]
3 tablespoons flour
Biscuits, Rice or Potatoes for serving (optional)

1) Clean the chicken. Season the chicken with salt, pepper and paprika or your own seasoning. I used Old Bay Seasoning.

2) In a large heavy saucepan, heat the olive oil with the butter over medium high heat. Heat until the mixture is sizzling and just starting to change color.

3) Add the chicken pieces and fry until golden brown on all sides. Remove the chicken pieces with tongs and set aside.

4) Reduce the heat to low and add the onions and bell pepper to the pan. Cook until softened, 8-10 minutes.

5) Raise the heat. Add the tomatoes and their juice, the wine, stock or water, parsley, hot pepper and Worcestershire sauces. Stir and bring to a boil.

6) Return the chicken to the pan, pushing it down in the sauce. Cover, reduce the heat and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

7) Add the corn and lima beans and mix well. Partly cover and cook 30 minutes more.

8) Pour some of the sauce from the pan into a bowl - enough to make 3/4 cup.

9) In a small bowl, mix the flour with a little water to make a paste.

10) Gradually stir in about 3/4 cup of the hot sauce from the pan.

11) Stir the flour mixture into the stew, and mix well to distribute it evenly. Cook 5-8 minutes more, stirring occasionally.

12) Check the seasoning. Serve the stew in shallow soup plates or large bowls, with biscuits, rice, or potatoes, if desired.

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
