This is a takeoff of New Orleans Shrimp, and also a variation of a dish called N'awlins Skillet which I had once in a large chain restaurant. Remember, you'll add the cayenne and crush red pepper to taste!

  • Melt the butter in the same skillet on medium heat, being careful not to burn. Stir in flour until combined, then stir in salt and pepper. Cook flour mixture until brown, 3 to 5 minutes; stir continuously. DO NOT ALLOW THIS MIXTURE TO BURN.

  • Stir in onion soup mix and water. Increase heat to medium high. Season with red cayenne pepper and crushed red pepper flakes. Stir in vegetables. If gravy is too thick, stir in warm water. Reduce heat to low.

  • Heat a separate large heavy skillet over medium high heat. Saute chicken, sausage and shrimp until chicken is no longer pink, and juices run clear. Stir into vegetable mixture. Simmer for 35 minutes.

Very good. We made it without the onion and it still had plenty of onion flavor from the onion soup. The chicken and shrimp could have used a little seasoning. Next time I will saute the meats separately and spice them up a little. It would be very good with roasted red potatoes as a side or in the recipe even. Read More

I was a little apprehensive about making this I wasn't sure how the onion soup mix "gravy" would end up tasting but my hubby and I both ended up really liking it! I left out the celery chilis and green pepper and added some fresh sliced mushrooms. I seasoned it with a cajun spice blend. I would suggest not adding the shrimp until about 15 minutes from the end of cooking time - they cook up quickly. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

As someone who loves cajun food this was awesome to me. I loved it. It had just the right heat but then.......the cayenne and red pepper were "to taste"........my taste:) I used andouille instead of kielbasa. I also spiced up my shrimp as I cooked it and likewise with the chicken. As for the gravy I didnt think it needed anything else but I had cayenne and red pepper in it already along with the salt and pepper. Great one. Thank you! Read More

My family loved this recipe. I added canned diced jalapenos (hot) and served it over Zatarain's New Orleans Rice Mix. My teenagers wrapped the rice and cajun mixture in flour tortillas the next day and said it was 'the bomb!' Thanks!! Read More

This was very good. I left out the sausage since I don't eat sausage and added jalapenos. I also added some thick sliced bacon cooked and crumbled to make up for the sausage. It was really yummy! Read More

Yum this was a great tasting recipe. I was making this for the family....small children included so I left out the hot stuff and added Franks at the table. The flavor was great. I was like suemck not sure how the onion soup mix would work into it. I did not have zucchini which I wish I did. But I did add some mushrooms and I went heavy on the peppers. This was great for dinner over a bit of brown rice....but even better the next day for lunch. Thanks Nicole! Read More
