This is a very forgiving recipe - add or reduce seasonings to your taste. I've been making this for over 20 years and ever so often I'm asked - Have you fixed Chicken Creole lately? So much for subtle hints. I serve this over my own yellow rice (just add turmeric to your rice as it cooks) as that is how we prefer it. Some fresh baked French Bread w/garlic butter and large tossed salad. Very hearty meal that will leave guests begging for another Mardi Gras invite.

Even though we finished the leftovers for lunch, we were disappointed in this recipe. Both DH & I felt it needed something to perk up the flavor. I'm sorry I can't be more generous with my rating, but thank you CindyJ for sharing the recipe.

This was so good we could hardly hold a conversation from all the mmmmms around the table. I made some changes based on our personal preferences: no mushrooms but used shreaded carrots and broccoli (just added at the simmer step to the top of pan and the steam cooked them), added a little more of each ingredient to make the sauce as well as about a cup of water (which got sucked right into it), and served mixed with pasta. Super yummy and now on the regular menu. Thanks for posting!
