Yes, this is a winner! So very tasty! I used the chicken breasts and browned them well (next time I think I will leave off the flour, DD thought it made the chicken slightly "slimey"....I think she is nuts.) I followed the rest of the recipe exactly, except for adding more cajun seasoning. I served this with steamed Jasmine rice and it was perfect for a cooler summer days dinner! Carol, I think this will also be perfect (sans flour of course) when I start "beaching" sometime next month. Thanks for this very tasty dinner option.
