Chicken in Creole Sauce (Salt Free)

Robert Thomas


There's a fair amount of chopping, but a good way to satisfy a hankering for Cajun or Creole cooking.

I used to make this a lot and then "upgraded" to make use of salt-free spice mixtures.

There's a bit of "kick" to this.

I serve over plain, sodium-free basmati rice.

This is a good make-ahead meal.
