Great recipe, I'm from Louisiana so I added a few traditional steps. I used a chicken andouille sausage. I blackened the chicken with creole spices in a very hot skillet before combining it with the vegetables (get a fan), then used the stuff left behind from the blackening for making a very flavorful roux using rendered bacon fat instead of oil. Not a healthy mod for the recipe but, ooh yeah. I also added about 7 or 8 bay leaves during cooking and a little Tony Chachere's seasoning. Laissez Bon Temps Roulez!!
