  • 1 roasting chicken, about 4 to 5 pounds, cut up
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sherry or broth
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 to 10 small white onions, halved
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen green peas
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1/2 cup diced turnip or rutabaga
  • 1 cup diced potatoes
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen corn
  • 1/3 cup flour mixed with 1/2 cup cool water to form a paste


Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or heavy pot. Add the chicken pieces; brown on all sides. Add water, sherry, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for about 45 minutes.
