    Default Chicken Bog

    I did a chicken bog for my family last week and it was the first one that I had did in many a year and it turned out fantastic. We ate on it for two days and I could have did a few days more, except I had eaten all that I had cooked.


    How many of you out there in the Gamecock Nation make or love Chicken Bog???


    How do you like it and what do you put in it as each person most likely puts their own little touch to it.

    I make it a good bit and always buy tickets to whatever fundraiser chicken bog is going on. It is more of a Pee Dee thing I have noticed.

    Would anyone care to share a recipe or some tips? I grew up in Horry County but my parents didnít so they donít know how to make it. Now I live in Arkansas where it doesnít exist. My attempts at making it just havenít been quite right...

    Yes....
    People in AZ don't have a clue what this is or a perleau.

    I tried to make something like this a while back and the rice was a mush.

    I had to look this one up...never heard of it.

    The images I saw had sausage in it in addition to the chicken. How close is this to a jambalaya?

    Chicken bog isnít soupy ó thereís no pooling liquid at all. The rice is pretty fluffy and itís not spicy. Thereís black pepper, but not Cajun-type spices. But again, I donít know how to make it, just eat it!

You will need a total of six cups of liquid for rice, so you will needto add water with chicken broth. Bring large pot to a boil and add spice totaste. You will want taste to be a little more spicy than desire because ricewill dilute. After boiling and you have seasoning to taste add rice and bringlarge pot to a boil again. Then let simmer on low or place in oven low heat for30 mins..

    Never heard of it. But any food with bog in the name has to be good.

    Bog or Perlou? I always wondered if it depended on where you're from.


    Either way, for something so simple, it's effing delicious.


    I've had it with some eggs thrown in there, too.

    I'm from Georgetown and we call it perlou, or pileau, or perlow, etc. I now live in Myrtle and it gets under my skin a little when everyone calls it bog. Same with Frogmore Stew...hate when it's called a lowcountry boil. Anyways, the biggest difference I've found in a perlou and bog is that the bog is a bit more wet and sticky whereas the perlou the rice is a bit more separated.

    the real key to a good chicken, venasin, pork or any meat bogg is the consolidation of ingredients IMO. I really let the meat and vegetables simmer and slow cook in a croc pot for hours to get the really flavor infused key ingredients as well as the tender, moist aspect of the meal. when the meat and vegetables are close to being cooked to where you like it.....then you simply cook the rice separately. You dont have to throw everything in at once. I have watched my mom cook it many times and shes always emphasized that the rice be cooked separaltly then just fix the plate/bowl by scooping rice into bottomw of the dish then adding the rest on top....much like hash and rice.

    I'm not sure how I feel about that. That's chicken and sausage over rice--it ain't no bog.

    My wife makes a pretty basic bog, but it is good eating for days. It’s economical for feeding a group.

    Chicken bog is awesome. I practically grew up on the stuff.


    We have always kept ours simple (I'm a picky eater anyway).....



    Boil the chicken in the water to make the broth.
    Remove the chicken and put in the rice and eventually the sausage.
    Let the chicken cool down, pull from bone, tear and when the rice and sausage are about done, return the chicken to the pot.


    Salt and pepper depending on your likes.


    In a lot of ways it is similar to how you cook a low country boil.


    Mine always looks similar to this:

    I will say that my stepfather, in his older age, has started to make his more soupy and has switched to yellow rice instead of white. It still tastes great, but is more like a soup than what I would call a real chicken bog.
