Brunswick stew recipe for dinner easy

Brunswick stew

Growing up in Virginia I’ve had many a Brunswick stew. From Family reunions to Fairs and festivals there was always a steaming pot simmering. Although I’ve made it for years, I wondered, where did it begin? I decided to research where Brunswick stew actually originated. Yes, Virginia lays claim to it in Brunswick County, but I discovered that Brunswick, Georgia and Brunswick County N.C. also take credit for it. So what is Brunswick stew exactly? Well it’s kind of like a thick soup, although sometimes it can be a bit thicker.

In Virginia the story goes that the recipe started on a hunting trip and used squirrels or rabbits. Where it truly started, well, your guess is as good as mine.

I do have a delicious and easy recipe for the crockpot. My ingredients are more store-bought rather than wild since I don’t eat squirrel but it’s delicious nonetheless. I like to brown the chicken a bit before I toss everything in the crockpot.
