    This was delicious! I didn't change much except to use a pinch extra of cayenne and I tossed some cajun spice into the flour dredge. I was supposed to have guests this past weekend who cancelled last minute and I was going to try it out on them. But I ended up just making it for me and DH anyway - and we loved it! Great one dish meal too, if you like that. I used Andouille sausage as well, 1 red and 1 orange pepper. 2 sm bone-in breasts and 3 drumsticks (equaled ~ 2.25 pounds). One thing - it makes A LOT! I'd say at least 6 servings. We have some much leftover! Having it again for dinner tonight. Thanks Chili - great recipe and definitely a keeper for us!

    This was winner for us! I used Andouille sausage. The recipe was reduced by half and the chicken was leg quarters. The recipe actually made 3 nice servings which makes for better nutritional values. Made for *Aussie Swap May 2009*

    This is a great one pot dish, a bit fiery and tasty too. I only had pepperoni so used that and some boneless fillets that I'd cubed. A great one to help clear those sinuses, hubby proclaimed...:lol: Thanks for posting!

    This was so easy and the results were impressive! I made this for supper last night and both of us really enjoyed it. I used chorizo sausage and some fire roasted preserved red peppers I made last year. I was also able to use fresh herbs from my garden in place of the dried herbs - I upped the quantities to 2 teaspoons. I used Camargue rice, a mixture of red and white for a tasty and spicy supper! We have the leftovers to eat tonight - what a great recipe! Merci Chili Spice . Made for the Aussie/NZ recipe swap. FT:-)
