I have a list of South Carolina treats to make and write up for you all. Last night I made chicken Bog, and I had two test subjects, one of whom helped with one of the Molasses cake. I think I gave her a code name already, but I can’t find it – so I’ll have to give her a new one, ‘Bug helped. So Peach and Mrs Teddy Bear, were my test subjects for Chicken Bog from Choosing Charleston.
First off, I didn’t follow the recipe exactly. But when I first found out what chicken bog was (yay Google) I got a wikipedia article, and somehow I forgot that it needed sausage – and I didn’t buy any. So the alterations started right from the moment I put the chicken in the pot. I also didn’t have any onion… and I added corn, celery, and carrot with the rice. Now, according to the wikipedia article, chicken bog is a pilaf type dish; yet my lovely test subjects took one look at it and noted it’s relation to risotto, and I couldn’t disagree with them. In fact I find more similarities than differences. It’s also not entirely dissimilar to my coconut chicken and rice recipe, except that I cooked the chicken and rice separately and mixed them together with the coconut sauce just before serving. – This may be on the menu in the near future, yum.
Here is the recipe as I made it, using the above recipe as a guide:
And Peach had seconds, and if you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know that Peach has the self-restraint of a saint… usually. Peach said that the seconds alone should tell me what she thought of it.
