"This isn't a true etouffee like the shrimp or crawfish you'll see at a restaurant. Which is probably why I and my family like it so much."

My family and I had the most wonderful cajun food in Colorado, of all places. Once we returned home, I decided I needed to try to make etouffee. The crawfish around here aren't very abundant, so I looked for chicken and found this one. It's flavorful, if a little heavy. I loved it, but my family found it only so so.
I like the recipe just changed a bit. after taking the chicken out i added the additional flour and allowed it to become a paste and brown then added the vegetables like the recipe says but instead of water I used chicken broth and added a can of stewed tomatoes. I added a bit of water to thin out. I let everything simmer until meat pulled apart. And served it over brown rice.
