DIRECTIONS

  • Cook rice as directed for the type of rice you are making.
  • While rice is cooking, start your dark roux. In a saute pan, melt your butter over medium heat, add flour, and whisk continuously for about 15-20 minutes until color is a medium-dark brown, a little darker than peanut butter, and should smell very 'nutty'. Time may vary; it's more about the color and smell.
  • Add the roux to a cold stock pot to stop the cooking. Add the cajun seasoning to your roux, along with the onions, celery, and peppers. Turn heat to low-medium and stir until well blended and simmering.
  • Add chicken, fresh garlic, dehydrated garlic, and half of the chicken stock to the pot, and stir. While stirring, gradually add more stock until the desired thickness is reached.
  • Add bay leaves, and cook for 30 minutes over medium heat.
  • Add green onion and parsley, stir, then serve over cooked rice.
