Wow, I'm a born and bred South Carolinian (Orangeburg County) and haven't heard of this dish. Maybe I've had it before but just didn't know what it was called. Interesting.

I have been fixing this since I was a kid. If you do it right, it is not at all greasy, but you have to drain off the fat from the chicken broth. I vary it depending on what type of peppers I have available. I will also add red bell pepper with the green, depending on what is on hand. I have added corn niblets during the last 30 minutes, as well. And I use 2 onions instead of one . . . as well as a little cayenne pepper and lots of ground peppercorns.

I thought everyone fixed chicken bog, lol.

every get together i went to when I lived in Horry county had chicken bog and it never had anything other than rice, chicken, sausage, and tons of grease in it. Ani, I know you've been all over the place. Where did you get your recipe? Is it different depending on the lowcountry area it comes from?

Part of my family is from Savannah - the Bulls. I got it from my grandmother's sister. But we did not put sausage in it. Just the bacon. It is a really old method, cause my mother is the youngest in a big family and her momma was born in 1889.

ROFL! Now, Sunny . . . my daddy was in college in Columbia when I was 3, and one of my fondest memories of Columbia, SC is his getting bags of boiled peanuts. They were soooo tasty. I used to suck the hulls trying to get every last bit of flavor out of 'em.

But then, I like things not everybody likes - from brussel sprouts to beets.

Chicken bog is just good ole (low)country cookin'!!! I was told that after the War, folks were so stretched for food - they would make up iron pots of chicken bog - and it would feed a crowd of folks. I have heard some wonderful stories about the proud (but aggressive) old rooster that got served up in a big ole bowl of chicken bog, Hee Hee. Add biscuits w/ honey . . .
