2 quarts water

1 (3 1/2-pound) whole chicken, cut up

1 (15-ounce) can baby lima beans, undrained

1 (8-ounce) can baby lima beans, undrained

2 (28-ounce) cans whole tomatoes, undrained and chopped

1 (16-ounce) package frozen baby lima beans

1 large yellow onion, diced

2 (15-ounce) cans cream-style corn

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup unsalted butter or margarine

1 tablespoon salt

  1. Bring water and chicken to a boil in a Dutch oven. Reduce heat, and simmer for 40 minutes or until tender. Remove chicken, and set aside. Reserve 3 cups broth in Dutch oven. Pour canned lima beans and liquid through a wire-mesh strainer into Dutch oven. Reserve beans. Add tomatoes to Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring often, for 40 minutes or until liquid is reduced by 1/3.
  2. Skin, bone, and shred chicken. Mash reserved beans with a potato masher. Add chicken, mashed and frozen beans, potatoes, and onions to Dutch oven. Cook over low heat, stirring often, for 3 hours and 30 minutes. Stir in corn and remaining ingredients. Cook over low heat, stirring often, for 1 additional hour.
