Creole Chicken

Creole Chicken.

This was one of the first recipes that I made for my dad and brother when they came to visit me back in college. I was renting an apartment with my friend and they came to visit and I felt like such a big girl cooking for my dad lol. Normally it’s the parents that provide food and shelter, but that weekend they were staying at my house and eating food that I prepared so I felt compelled to make sure it was good. (I think I got the inspiration from an app called allrecipes ? can’t be sure but thanks!)

CREOLE CHICKEN

(some chicken! I used chicken breast tenderloins this time)

14 oz diced tomatoes

1/2 cup chopped celery

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

2 cloves minced garlic

1/4 cup cup onion

Red pepper flakes

Basil

Parsley

Salt & Pepper

Chili sauce (found in the aisle near the marinara?)

Cut the chicken into strips on chunks.

Heat a skillet on medium to high, coat the bottom with some olive oil when the skillet gets hot. Throw in the onions and garlic and cook til translucent.

Brown the chicken chunks. (Chicken chunks? that doesn’t sound appetizing but I promise it is)

Toss in the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer for like 15-20 mins.

Serve with some white rice.

Enjoy.

    My mouth is watering and it is only 9:20AM. I make this dish but do not use all the ingredients you did, such as celery. Cooking is such fun and it is relaxing, takes much of the stress away.
