    Trinkets's Note:

    Cajun and Creole homes have been dining on Sauce Piquant for generations. Some like it with Alligator, some with chicken. The main ingredient can even be seafood. But the process is all the same. You must have the trinity (onion, bell pepper, and celery), and you must make a roux.

      THIS IS AN OUTSTANDING RECIPE!!I used bone in-skin on thighs(7) and sprinkled 5 of them early in the day with cajun seas. I used a couple to make my own broth, since I like it much better than box or can! :-). Since the thighs were alrady seasoned I was a little afraid to use th 3 T of cajun seas. So I added 1 1/2 t to the 1 c flour and redged my chicken in that pior to browning. I used "THAT Flour" to make my Roux. Other than that I followed the recipe as stated. The sauce was very thick and I ended up using 4c plus of chicken stock. Be sure to stirr often, since it wants to stick to the bottom of the pot. I used my heavy Le Creuset saucepan. My husband gave it 5 Thums up! My mother in law made something like that and called it Court Boullion and baked stuffed Speckled Trout in it. Thanks for a great recipe and I can get my husband to eat chicken again. :-)
