This is one of my families favorite chicken dishes. It's easy, and everything is made in one pot. This mom likes that.

Very good! My husband & I loved it. I cubed the chicken instead and served it more as a stir-fry style. It works well with a can of diced tomatoes too - I tried that when I realized I had no fresh ones. Read More

I thought this recipe was rather bland to be considered "New Orleans". I had to add cajun seasonings. I don't think I would make again. Read More

This is a nice change from the run of the mill chicken dishes. It is even better the next day. The only thing I had trouble with was that the peppers and tomatoes cooke up into nothing. But overall this was very good. Read More

This was wonderful! A big hit for dinner! I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and cut them into a little larger than bite-sized pieces. I also used one pound of turkey kielbasa. I did not add the rice to the pot however as my family prefers their rice separate. I had no problem with it thickening without the rice either and that was with using two cups of fat-free chicken broth. One can of diced tomatoes worked perfectly well as a substitute for the fresh tomatoes as mentioned by another reviewer. It was amazing! I couldn't get enough! Definitely making this again! Read More

I was intrigued by the name (because I'm from New Orleans) but there is no heat in the dish. Easily added trust me! I swapped out the smoked sausage for Andouille and added cayenne pepper and the bottle of tabasco on the table. I thought the preparation was easy and the addition of the Allspice was a very nice touch. Other slight modifications I made were to nix the tomato (my partner doesn't like them) and used a green and red pepper instead of 2 reds. My daughter has already asked me to make it again this weekend! Read More

This dish was pretty amazing! My sister and I made it for our boyfriends who also really enjoyed it. We did make some variations to the original recipe. I used a can of tomatoes and added cayenne pepper as a few of the other reviews mentioned. Instead of 2 bell peppers I used one and then used a large jalepeno in place of the omitted one. I cubed the chicken up so that it would speed up the cooking process. Overall I would highly recommend this dish and would definitely make it again. It was spicy yet very flavorful and was a great comfort food. Read More

Different taste than the usual. For New Orleans to be in the name I was expecting a bit more cajun spices. It was great but I did add some cajun spices into mine and I was generous. Read More
