Chicken Bog

Chicken Bog


"I am not sure of the origin of this recipe; it is a cross between a casserole and a stew: chock full of chicken, sausage, rice and onion. A really good cold weather comfort food. When you're feeling 'bogged' down, make Chicken Bog to cheer up! Note: This recipe is what is called 'low country cooking.' It is a term used in the coastal regions of South Carolina. Chicken Bog is even served at local restaurants in South Carolina along with other local favorites."

  1. Place water, salt and onion in a large pot. Add chicken and bring all to a boil; cook until chicken is tender, about 1 hour.
  2. Remove chicken from pot and let cool. Remove skin and bones and chop remaining meat into bite size pieces.
  3. Skim off fat from cooking liquid and measure 3 1/2 cups of this chicken broth into a 6-quart saucepan. Add rice, chicken pieces, sausage, herb seasoning and bouillon to this saucepan. Cook all together for 30 minutes; let come to a boil, then reduce heat to low, keeping pan covered the whole time. If mixture is too watery or juicy, cook over medium low heat, uncovered, until it reaches the desired consistency. Stir often while cooking.

I grew up in coastal SC and this is a fall and winter staple. I couldn't give this recipe all the stars, although it is a good place to start for beginners. But on the downside, the Italian Sea...

I'm from SC and have tried to make this many times with no success. This recipe worked and the whole family loved it. I did leave out the Italian seasoning and added salt and pepper.

I used this recipe on a catering for 100 people...They LOVED it. I live in S.C. so we know a real good bog and this is a real good bog! The only thing I would change is using a product like "B...

All it tasted like was Italian Seasoning. I only used half of what the recipe called for and it was still just overpoweringly flavored like Italian Seasoning. I live in South Carolina and I've h...

I first had chicken bog made by a friend from South Carolina. This recipe is better than hers. Only complaint, too salty. I omitted the salt and it is perfect.
