This is a very forgiving recipe - add or reduce seasonings to your taste. I've been making this for over 20 years and ever so often I'm asked - Have you fixed Chicken Creole lately? So much for subtle hints. I serve this over my own yellow rice (just add turmeric to your rice as it cooks) as that is how we prefer it. Some fresh baked French Bread w/garlic butter and large tossed salad. Very hearty meal that will leave guests begging for another Mardi Gras invite.
