Originating in New Orleans, Popeye's is the name of a fast food chain specializing in New Orleans style fried chicken...and it is wonderful! One of my favorite side dishes at Popeye's is the Cajun Rice. I found this recipe on copykat.com and it is so very near the same excellent flavor found at Popeye's, I just have to share.
