Reviews forCreole Chicken
"This was pretty good! Came together quickly and was easy to make. I cut the chicken up into bite-sized pieces, and I sauteed the veggies a bit before adding in the tomatoes so they wouldn't be too crispy at the end for our liking. I added the chicken in with the veggies to simmer, and I stirred in the cooked rice at the end to serve family-style. It was great as-is, but I think I'll swap out some Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning for the chili powder next time for a stronger kick. Delicious!"
"We had this dish tonight and it was delicious. So easy to prepare. I made a couple of minor changes. I cut my chicken breast into strips to cook faster and it did. I also sprinkled them with creole seasoning before sauteing them to give them a little flavor thanks to a reviewer. I used fire roasted tomatoes and brown rice to complete the meal. This recipe is a real winner. Both hubby and I cleaned our plates.Volunteer Field Editor"
