Gingersnap Stew

Submitted by TwoOtta3


1 whole small  chicken , cleaned and rinsed (bout 4 lbs)
2 cans of whole tomatoes, broken in pieces including juice
3 “Knorr” Chicken bouillion cubes
1 whole stalk of celery, leaves included, chopped
1 really large onion chopped
1 cup of Uncle Bens White Rice, rinsed and uncooked
3 tbls of parsley or cilantro, chopped,  fresh is always better and I prefer cilantro


In an 8 quart stock pot place the chicken and fill the pot with water until 4 inches from the top . Bring to a boil and simmer until chicken falls apart when removed from the pot.

Place the chicken on a platter to cool. Skim the excess from the sides of the pot. Add all the other ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer.

 Ok now go watch “Who wants to be a Millionaire” or something.

 When the Chicken has cooled remove all the meat and place in the pot and stir in .



 Sometimes I like to add a large can of chicken broth to the water. And remember, to cook till the celery is soft…..Serve with a nice crusty bread and a cold beer.
