Ever been so hungry you could eat a horse? What about a squirrel or even a possum? Well, if you have, you’re in luck, because this traditional Southern stew has all the heartiness required by the mavericks who used to stew any small game unlucky enough to wander across their path -- but it retains none of the gaminess.
This version uses chicken, but the tomato base and lima beans are true to the original, whether that came from Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina or somewhere else (no one's quite sure). The good news is that you can claim it as an old family recipe, wherever you’re from. Your guests will have no way of proving otherwise!
