 Cut chicken into pieces and simmer in 3 quarts of water for a thin stew, or
 in 2 quarts for a thick stew, until meat can be easily removed from bones,
 about 2 hours; remove chicken from broth; add raw vegetables and simmer,
 uncovered, till beans and potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally to
 prevent scorching; add chicken, boned and diced, and the seasonings; mix
 well and remove from heat; let cool to room temperature, uncovered, then
 cover, refrigerate overnight; reheat over moderately-low heat to a slow
 simmer; DO NOT BOIL! Serve with warm biscuits or bread. Notes: If canned
 vegetables are used, drain and include juices in chicken cooking liquid.
 Brunswick stew benefits from long slow cooking.
 In some homes, it is a rule that the stew cannot be eaten the day it is
 made. The flavor will always improve with age.
