Chicken Creole Recipe

With Haiti’s earthquake came the awareness of it’s strong and resilient people.  As images of the devastation came out, I couldn’t help but be amazed at how Haitians could maintain their spirits while being put through so much.  While groups gathered in the streets to sing and dance and pray, I was buoyed by the perseverance of the human spirit.  As a tribute to these people, I tried my hand at a Creole dish that I would like to share with you.

 

In my search for a good recipe to try I was taken to the U.S. National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of all places.  In their slew of recipes online they did have a version of Chicken Creole that looked interesting.  I did change a few ingredients to suit what I had on hand but the essence of the dish was maintained.

 

Chicken Creole

Ingredients:

Non-stick cooking spray
4 medium skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
4 Roma tomatoes or 1 can of tomatoes, chopped
1 cup medium salsa
1 teaspoon hot sauce (we like spicy food, but you can adjust this to suit your tastes)
1 large red pepper, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh basil
1 tablespoon fresh flat parsley
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1. Spray a deep skillet with nonstick spray.  Preheat pan over high heat.
  2. Cook chicken in hot skillet, stirring, for 2-3 minutes, or until no longer pink.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients to the pan.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered for 10 minutes.
  4. Serve over hot cooked rice or noodles.

 

This dish has so much flavor and life!  Just like the people of Haiti.  Enjoy it today.
