This is a easy, quick recipe with lots of wonderful flavor :) I made as written with a couple small adjustments, I used 1 & 1/2 cups of rice, which was plenty or it would have been very dry in my opinion and only 1 teaspoon of Tony Chachere's original Creole seasoning. Thanks for posting this great recipe! *Made for the Cool Beans event in the photo forum* UPDATE 3/6/10: I had a lot of this leftover so I added 2 & 1/2 cups off chicken stock and re-heated for lunch and it came out very creamy. Wonderful!!!!!!
