Put a layer of onions in the bottom of a crockpot.Add 2 cans of cannellini beans, drained. Put in a chicken. cut up a pound of smoked sausage. Pour over the chicken 1/2 C white wine and 2C chicken broth. Cook on low for 6 hours. Serve with quartered new potatoes.
I made this the other day and I think my crockpot controls are reversed--it cooked pretty high and the chicken was VERY done. However, it was good and the broth was TDF.
I took the leftovers--potatoes included--added a large can of tomatoes and a can of tomato sauce, shredded the chicken, put it in a stockpot and simmered a half hour. VOILA, pretty good Brunswick stew.
