 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Oil, olive
  • 2 lg Onions, diced
  • 2 md Pepper, bell, diced
  • 1/2 c Parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 c Onion, green, diced
  • 1 ts Mint, dried, crushed
  • 1 tb Garlic, minced
  • 1 c Wine, white, dry
  • 2 c Stock, chicken
  • 2 lb Tomatoes, fresh, chopped
  • -- (@ 4 cups)
  • 2 tb Soy sauce
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1 tb Sauce, cayenne,
  • -- Louisianna Hot Sauce
  • 1 Chicken, fryer, cooked,
  • -- deboned
  • Rice, cooked


Cook the chicken by boiling it in water and vegetables as you would to
make a good chicken stock. When the chicken is cooked, remove the chicken
from the broth, cool, and debone. Set aside the warm pieces of chicken for
later in the recipe.

Strain the chicken stock and reserve.

In a large pot or Dutch oven, put the olive oil in over moderate heat,
swirling to coat the bottom of the pot. Add the onions, pepper, parsley and
saute for a minute with stirring.

Add diced green onion and saute for another minute.

Add mint, garlic, and white wine (the wine tends to take the
bitterness out of onions, garlic, and other ingredients and takes the place
of sugar for making these ingredients milder) and continue to simmer for
two minutes.

Add the chicken stock, tomatoes and soy sauce and simmer for another 2

Add a teaspoon of salt, and the Louisianna Hot Sauce (made from
cayenne pepper) to taste and stir. Obviously Justin Wilson LOVES hot sauce
... and you may not. Use it as sparingly or as generously as you like.

To the hot simmering mixture, add the cooked chicken to the pot and
stir occasionally while simmering ten to fifteen minutes over low heat. The
chicken is already cooked, the simmering is to let the flavors merge and
meld together before serving.

Serve the Chicken ala Creole over cooked rice with a glass of red wine
and pieces of Burgundy Bread ** on the side.
