  • 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes with 1/3 cup sugar added
  • 16-ounce can creamed corn
  • 1 cup ketchup

  1. Bring the chicken and water to a boil in a pot. Cook until the meat is tender, about 45 minutes. Pour out the stock, saving 2 cups. Take the skin and bones off of the chicken, then chop up the meat.
  2. Put the chicken into a different pot with the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer for half an hour. The stock can be poured in if the stew thickens too much. Pour onto rice to serve.
