Chicken Creole





Three cheers for Gaye!!!!

Gaye selected Shrimp Creole on page 184 on Weeknight Wonders. Shrimp, not being an option for a kosher cook, I substituted chunks of chicken. I was fortunate to find two cooked chicken breasts in my freezer and cut them up and we had a fabulous creole with them.


I cut the amount of canned tomatoes down also. I thought it would be a soup, if I used the recommended amount. Hubby commented on how much he liked it twice. That is a really good sign. I agree with him. It was tasty and had everything needed for a meal in the dish.


You can check what our other members made by going to Eating with Ellie website. Eating with Ellie is a group of cooks who enjoy Ellie's healthy and yummy recipes. There are no requirements to participate. Just link up the choice for the week. The book we are using, Weeknight Wonders, has a diversity of recipes and the real challenge is selecting with so many good choices.

  2. Oh, it looks good with chicken, too. We liked it very much as well. A good version of this as most of the fat and calories are minimal. Good weeknight meal as it is fast and easy.

  4. I will have to try this with chicken. It is such a good sauce. Very close to my grandfather's creole from South Louisiana
