Succotash refers to the combination of corn and lima beans, a mixture introduced to the early American settlers by the North American Indians.


  • Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add the chicken pieces and brown on all sides. Add the water, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon, reserve the poaching liquid, and when cool enough to handle remove the meat from the bones and set aside. Strain the poaching liquid to remove solids, reserving 6 cups, and set aside.*
  • Puree about 1 cup of the corn in a blender or food processor and set aside.
