Recipe: Chicken Bog

Alright, here it is.
The much anticipated, famous Chicken Bog recipe that Patrick cooks up several times a year for us.
I've mentioned it enough times on this blog to have a few people ask me what in the world a Chicken Bog is to have some requests for the recipe we use. And for the lucky ones who have been at one of or tailgates, NYE parties, or post-Kiawah Half lunches... you've now got the secret to recreating this at home.

Chicken Bog
1 whole chicken
1 lb smoked sausage, sliced into 1/2" pieces
1 cup chopped onion
1 stick of butter
2 teaspoons seasoned salt {Lawry's}
2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground red pepper
8 cups of chicken broth*
3 cups uncooked white rice
*chicken broth can be made while cooking the chicken or you can use store bought
1. Place chicken in a stock pot and add water until the chicken is just covered. Boil & cook until chicken is done. Let chicken cool before shredding. Save chicken broth from the pot to use.
2. In a separate stock pot, combine the shredded chicken, sausage, rice, onion, butter, and seasonings with the homemade chicken broth. Bring to a boil.
3. Boil for 10 minutes before covering and simmering until rice is done. Add additional chicken broth as necessary to prevent rice from drying out.
4. Serve & enjoy!
Does it take a little bit of prep work and time to make a chicken bog? You bet it does. You could always take the short way out and use pre-cooked chicken {like a rotisserie chicken}, but Patrick has found that the homemade chicken broth that comes from cooking your own chicken is the secret ingredient.
All of the work is totally worth it though. And I say that usually having done none of the work outside of the grocery shopping and the taste testing of the rice to determine when it's cooked. Patrick gets all the credit for this one.
Throw some Cheddar Garlic & Black Pepper Biscuits with it and you've got one heck of a meal.
What are y'all waiting for? Go make some Chicken Bog!
