Learn how to make Chicken Bog

This dish is a South Carolina tradition. Learn how to make Chicken Bog yourself, from folks who have been cooking it up for as long as they can remember.

Speaking of how to make chicken bog, is it called chicken bog or perlo?  It’s an age old question.  While there’s definitely a difference between the two, a lot depends on who you ask.  One thing’s for sure… if you ask anyone from this neck of the woods, from the Pee Dee to Georgetown County, South Carolina, they’ll tell you it’s chicken bog.  And boy, is it good!  We learned just how it’s done from the folks at the Snak Shak in Myrtle Beach, a true locals spot located along the Grand Strand.  Take note, and get ready to cook up a true southern dish, sure to satisfy and serve as the perfect comfort food.
