    Being Italian, tomato based sauces are among my absolute favorite, so it is no surprise that I crave a good Creole Chicken with zesty sauce.

    Two years ago, a friend and I took a master sauce class and although Creole was mentioned as a tomato-based sauce, we didn’t get a chance to prepare it that day. She and I regularly get together to mess around in the kitchen, trying out new dishes, so we decided to go back to the basics and prepare Creole Chicken.

    Using a the recipe given to us by the instructor, we stamped it thoroughly with our personal tastes, primarily adding andouille chicken sausage and adding vegetables beyond tomato. Use any cut of chicken you like and omit or change up the sausage as desired.

    Creole sauce is super simple and requires more chopping than actual cook time. Full of fresh vegetables and antioxidant packed spices, it is also a healthy choice. Serve over rice for a complete one dish meal with some SPICE!
