TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - A chicken bog is a simple way to prepare a very flavorful chicken and rice dish. It originated in the Carolinas, where my family is from. Other areas have very similar dishes they call by different regional names: chicken pilaf, chicken pilau, or other names. In South Carolina they call it a bog, because the chicken is bogged down in lots of flavorful broth, and then the rice is cooked in it. And believe me, rice has a long history of importance in South Carolina. They also add some smoked sausage, and I like it that way, too.
