Caribbean Pulled Chicken Stew
Very Good 4.7/5
(21 ratings)

This is a thick hearty BOLD tasting stew. The ginger gives it a kick and the coconut milk adds a delicious texture and rich flavor. I was apprehensive at first as I wasn't too sure how this stew would turn out but it ended up being AMAZING, everybody loved it and had multiple servings, the pot was empty in no time !!! I promise this stew will not disappoint!

(use homemade chicken broth and you can cut the sodium in half in this recipe)

(for extra protein add a can of chick peas, but rinse well to keep the sodium low)

Crook's Corner Shrimp and Grits
Very Good 4.5/5
(2 ratings)

The late Bill Neal has influenced young chefs across the South, and diners still enjoy his inspired recipes at this landmark restaurant in Chapel Hill. Executive chef Bill Smith has added some creative touches to the menu, such as Warm Goat Cheese Salad With Roasted Beets and Pumpkin Seeds and Hangar Steak With Bourbon Brown Sauce, but Shrimp and Grits is still a Crook's Corner classic.
