Palmetto Chicken

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

The ingredients are reminiscent of gumbo, but this is a knife-and-fork meal. Serve with rice or a good, crusty bread. Adapted from Paul Prudhomme's Louisiana Tastes. If you can't get andouille, any good-quality smoked sausage can be substituted.

Loved this recipe. I was a little heavy handed with the spices, but it was all worth it. I had to pass it on.
