"This is a takeoff of New Orleans Shrimp, and also a variation of a dish called N'awlins Skillet which I had once in a large chain restaurant. Remember, you'll add the cayenne and crush red pepper to taste!"

  1. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute onion, celery, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, zucchini, and green chiles until the onion is tender. Remove vegetables from skillet, and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in the same skillet on medium heat, being careful not to burn. Stir in flour until combined, then stir in salt and pepper. Cook flour mixture until brown, 3 to 5 minutes; stir continuously. DO NOT ALLOW THIS MIXTURE TO BURN.
  3. Stir in onion soup mix and water. Increase heat to medium high. Season with red cayenne pepper and crushed red pepper flakes. Stir in vegetables. If gravy is too thick, stir in warm water. Reduce heat to low.
  4. Heat a separate large heavy skillet over medium high heat. Saute chicken, sausage and shrimp until chicken is no longer pink, and juices run clear. Stir into vegetable mixture. Simmer for 35 minutes.

My husband Chuck-Tony says it's easily an all-time household favorite. Even tasttier, he says, with Tabasco mixed in. Great on top of steamed white rice! ;-)

As someone who loves cajun food, this was awesome to me. I loved it. It had just the right heat but then.......the cayenne and red pepper were "to taste"........my taste :) I used andouille in...

This was very good. I left out the sausage since I don't eat sausage, and added jalapenos. I also added some thick sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled to make up for the sausage. It was really ...

My family loved this recipe. I added canned diced jalapenos (hot) and served it over Zatarain's New Orleans Rice Mix. My teenagers wrapped the rice and cajun mixture in flour tortillas the next ...

Okay...this is something i would make when i am running out of ideas or when i don't feel like making anything extraordinary.

I was skeptical about this recipe because of the onion soup mix but it's wonderful. My only complaint is about the gravy, 1 tbsp of butter is not enough to cook the flour in. I had to use a fe...
