Very good! My husband & I loved it. I cubed the chicken instead and served it more as a stir-fry style. It works well with a can of diced tomatoes too - I tried that when I realized I had no fresh ones.

I thought this recipe was rather bland to be considered "New Orleans". I had to add cajun seasonings. I don't think I would make again.

This is a nice change from the run of the mill chicken dishes. It is even better the next day. The only thing I had trouble with was that the peppers and tomatoes cooke up into nothing. But overall this was very good.

This was wonderful! A big hit for dinner! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cut them into a little larger than bite-sized pieces. I also used one pound of turkey kielbasa. I did not add the rice to the pot, however, as my family prefers their rice separate. I had no problem with it thickening without the rice either and that was with using two cups of fat-free chicken broth. One can of diced tomatoes worked perfectly well as a substitute for the fresh tomatoes as mentioned by another reviewer. It was amazing! I couldn't get enough! Definitely making this again!

Very tasty. My whole family loved even my little ones. My husband like a little spice so I added a little ground cayenne pepper to his plate. It was delicious, i will definately used this recipe again.

I was intrigued by the name (because I'm from New Orleans) but there is no heat in the dish. Easily added trust me! I swapped out the smoked sausage for Andouille and added cayenne pepper and the bottle of tabasco on the table. I thought the preparation was easy and the addition of the Allspice was a very nice touch. Other slight modifications I made were to nix the tomato (my partner doesn't like them) and used a green and red pepper instead of 2 reds. My daughter has already asked me to make it again this weekend!

My kids made this and it tasted awesome. Will definitely make this again.

Different taste than the usual. For New Orleans to be in the name I was expecting a bit more cajun spices. It was great but I did add some cajun spices into mine and I was generous.
