This recipe was very good. I was a little doubtful when I put in the green beans but they tasted great. Corn would work too. My husband and I both liked it. Read More

Nothing really spectacular with this one. Pretty simple and quick and easy to make but not a staple in our kitchen. Could taste better if I had used fresh tomatoes fresh green beans and maybe some white wine?? That would maybe eliminate some of the canned taste the dish had. Read More

I must admit I wasn't sure when I read this but it turned out great and my boyfriend loved it too! I didn't add the beans cause he doesn't like them but I added corn as one reviewer suggested. I didn't have creole seasoning or whatever so I used carribean jerk spice. I was filling and tastey! Next time I am going to try it with some sort of pasta instead of rice. It also lead me to my own ideas for other meals similar. Read More

Some more tips: Creole and Cajun seasoning are the same thing I believe. I use a brand called Tony's which is great on lots of things. I like to sprinkle about half the chili powder directly on the chicken as I'm browning it. You can experiment with the veggies. I use frozen green beans. I also like to add a can of mushrooms and about 6oz. frozen spinach but that's not for everyone. Finally for anyone doing South Beach this is Phase 1 friendly if you omit the rice. For Phase 2 use brown or wild rice. Read More

Delicious! Used a recipe from this site for Creole Seasoning Blend. Used fresh green beans because I had some on hand. Subbed a vegetarian chicken substitute. Turned out very tasty and the picky eater I served it to liked it. Read More

This one really surprised me. I wasn't so sure I would care for it but it was very good! My kids enjoyed it also. I used french style canned green beans. I poured the tomato/bean mixture over the sauteed chicken in the skillet and let it all simmer together for a few minutes. I will make this again-definitely. Read More
