I have been looking through old recipes to get some ideas on what the menu could be while we’re there and came across this one that my family loves ! It is so easy too This recipe came from a cookbook our pastor’s wife wrote…it’s delicious, easy and healthy…with some crusty whole wheat bread, it’s a great way to end a day on the slopes !! This freezes well too.
- 6 skinless chicken breasts
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 stalked celery, diced
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 16oz. can white shoepeg corn (or frozen corn works too)
- 1 10 oz. package frozen small butterbeans
- 1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
- 2 small potatoes, peeled and cubes
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 2-3 T.white vinegar
- 1 T. Turbinado sugar
- 1 tsp worcestershire sauce

Place chicken in a pot and cover with water. Add celery and onion and boil for 20 minutes. Remove chicken to cool and cut into bite sized pieces.
Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Serves 8
