Creole Chicken I

Creole Chicken I

"This is a family favorite and easy to prepare in the slow cooker. The chicken has a bite to it but one can control the heat by limiting the amount of hot pepper sauce used. Even if you don't like very hot food, include a few drops for flavor. (For the ham, I get the deli to slice about a one inch section of Virginia Ham)."

The final result was a greasy, mushy consistency that didn't go over well. The ingrediants were good, and the flavor was nice, but the texture was bad. I don't usually cook with Chicken Thighs/o...

This turned out very well, but I made several changes based on other reviews. No ham... used 1 lb. bulk Italian sausage (hot) and 1 lb. shrimp, and two pounds of chicken breast. Also, put in a ...

I took the advice of the other Reviewers and added extra spicyness to the recipe by using extra Hot Sauce and Cayenne Pepper. I had to cook mine on low for 10 hours and I just sauteed the Polis...

Very quick and easy to make. Next time, I will use more seasonings, perhaps, crushed red pepper and cajun seasoning to spice it up more. Not very hot. Deleted the Ham, and used boneless, skin...

Absolutely fabulous! We added green chiles and used chicken breast, low fat ham and low fat smoked sausage to lower fat and calories. We will be making this regularly in our house!!
