Creole Chicken Recipe
This is really easy and very very tasty. It's a creation of mine so it is probably not like New Orleans people would do it, but the flavor does remind that.
- 1 lb chicken breast
- 5 garlic cloves
- 4 tbsp butter
- 2 tsp creole seasoning
- 2 tbsp parsley
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 3 tbsp hot sauce (if you would like a milder spicy taste, opt out of this - it will still be spicy but not too much)
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1/4 cup chicken stock
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 chopped scallions
Cut up the chicken breast into bite size pieces, set aside.
Chop the garlic, set aside.
Put a large skillet or a wok on medium heat with the butter and chopped garlic, cook it for about a minute, just so the garlic is starting to be fragrant.
Add the creole seasoning, the parsley and the chicken, and let it cook until the chicken is fully cooked.
Remove the chicken from the wok onto a plate and set aside - leave a little bit of the juices in the wok.
Add the wine, hot sauce, lemon juice, chicken stock, paprika and Worcestershire sauce in the wok with the other juices, bring it into a simmer, and cook until it reduces into half, which should take around 5 minutes.
Add the chicken back to the wok and let it cook in the sauce you just made for a minute, just so it will incorporate the flavors.
When you serve it, top it with the scallions.
Serve with a baguette or rice.
