The history behind the Brunswick stew is unclear, as Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia all claim the stew was invented in their state. What is clear though is how amazing those simple country flavors taste together, as evidenced by this Brunswick Chicken Bake! The classic, rich tomato and creamy bean mixture is given extra smoky sweetness with the inclusion of barbeque sauce and Italian seasonings, and the juicy chicken makes sure each bite is meaty and delicious! Brunswick Chicken Bake makes the soup course the main course, exactly where it belongs!
