This was delicious! I didn't change much except to use a pinch extra of cayenne and I tossed some cajun spice into the flour dredge. I was supposed to have guests this past weekend who cancelled last minute and I was going to try it out on them. But I ended up just making it for me and DH anyway - and we loved it! Great one dish meal too, if you like that. I used Andouille sausage as well, 1 red and 1 orange pepper. 2 sm bone-in breasts and 3 drumsticks (equaled ~ 2.25 pounds). One thing - it makes A LOT! I'd say at least 6 servings. We have some much leftover! Having it again for dinner tonight. Thanks Chili - great recipe and definitely a keeper for us!
This was winner for us! I used Andouille sausage. The recipe was reduced by half and the chicken was leg quarters. The recipe actually made 3 nice servings which makes for better nutritional values. Made for *Aussie Swap May 2009*
This is a great one pot dish, a bit fiery and tasty too. I only had pepperoni so used that and some boneless fillets that I'd cubed. A great one to help clear those sinuses, hubby proclaimed...:lol: Thanks for posting!
This was so easy and the results were impressive! I made this for supper last night and both of us really enjoyed it. I used chorizo sausage and some fire roasted preserved red peppers I made last year. I was also able to use fresh herbs from my garden in place of the dried herbs - I upped the quantities to 2 teaspoons. I used Camargue rice, a mixture of red and white for a tasty and spicy supper! We have the leftovers to eat tonight - what a great recipe! Merci Chili Spice . Made for the Aussie/NZ recipe swap. FT:-)
I finally tried this recipe last night. It was excellent and unanimous by kids 8, 12, and 16. I used boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins and Polka Kielbasa smoked sausage. I added some garlic salt and Cajun seasoning to the flour and also added garlic salt and Cajun seasoning to the vegetables as they were sauteing. I also cooked the sliced sausages for about 5 min. before adding the vegetables. Since I did not use a hot sausage, I upped the amount of cayenne pepper. I used the sweet peppers which complimented the dish perfectly. This would be easy to make for a big group. Thank you for posting!
I've made this twice now & we just love it. Different brands of chorizo gave the dish different flavours, but that's not a bad thing. Easy to put together with great results. I used 1lb chicken thigh fillets, which I dredged in a combination of maize flour & creole seasoning. I also used a sml tin chopped tomatoes instead of the 3 plums, as this was all I had on hand. Great meal. Thanks Chili for a nice, easy keeper.
This meal is very flavorful. I had never heard of chorizo until this recipe. It is now one of my favorites. You can omit the rice for a low-carb meal.
The prep work took no time at all, but the finished product tastes like real work went into it. I didn't have any oregano, but next time won't skip it. I used whole grain rice, more than a pinch of cayenne, and about 3/4 tsp salt. It took a little longer to cook, but I didn't mind. The aroma filled the house with anticipation. It's a tasty dish and a nice change from the usual. I'll make it again.
