    ellie_'s Note:

    Delicious over rice. The original recipe ingredients are for 1 tablespoon Cajun or Creole seasoning - this seemed like a lot for us, so adjust per your taste. The original recipe also used Creole mustard and I used Dijon mustard (reducing the amount that was called for). Recipe source: Bon Appetit (February 2007)

      This was really good! I did do things a tiny bit different though. I kind of made it as a jambalaya. In a medium bowl I threw in my sausage, spices (including cajun seasoning, I didn't mix it in with the shrimp just threw it in the bowl), onions and bell pepper and I didn't do chicken broth. I added one large fresh chopped tomatoe, 1 tsp. garlic powder, salt, 1/3 cup water and a dash oregano. Mixed it all up and set aside. In a pan I seared a couple chicken breast, seasoned with salt and pepper, took out and put in the sausage mixture and heated up then poured into a casserole dish, put in the chicken as well and baked in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes. 15 minutes before done I threw in the shrimp and let cook for remainder of time. SO GOOD!! I loved the flavor the mustard and vinegar gave it! So yummy!!

      I made this for dinner tonight and used smoked sausage. Tasty and very simple to make. BF and son really enjoyed. I used brown rice to serve over. Thanks for sharing!

      This was very good! My husband usually doesn't like green peppers, but he didn't mind them in this for some reason. If I make this again, I think I'll cut back on the heat a little, but otherwise it was great! Thanks!
