Carolina Chicken Mull
Chicken and milk stewed in a Dutch oven? We were hesitant, too. But before long we were converted by this deeply comforting dish.
Why This Recipe Works
A dish not often seen outside of the Carolinas, chicken mull combines inexpensive ingredients—milk, water, chicken, and saltines—in a simple yet unbelievably comforting stew. For our version, we used a base of chicken broth and added milk and heavy cream to create a creamy texture. Adding crushed saltines to the stew gave it more heft. We used the food processor to make shredding the chicken a breeze.
