    In Dutch oven or large saucepan, cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon from Dutch oven. Reserve drippings in Dutch oven. In small bowl, combine basil and pepper; mix well. Rub onto chicken pieces. Brown chicken in hot bacon drippings, turning to brown all sides; drain. Remove chicken from Dutch oven.

    Add 3 cups of the apple cider and the ketchup to Dutch oven; blend well. Add chicken, carrots, onion and green beans. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 45 minutes or until chicken is fork tender and juices run clear.

    In small bowl, combine flour and remaining 1/2 cup apple cider; blend well. Gradually stir into hot chicken mixture. Cook and stir until stew is thickened and bubbly. Stir in bacon. If desired, add salt and pepper to taste.

Expert Tips

  • To avoid lumps in the thickening mixture, add the cider to the flour a little at a time, not the other way around.
  • Instead of using the flour and cider mixture to thicken the stew, simmer 2 large apples, peeled and diced, along with the other ingredients.
  • Ladle each serving of the stew into plates of broad egg noodle and pass a basket of warmed rolls.
