Chicken A la Creole
2 tb Oil, olive
2 lg Onions, diced
2 md Pepper, bell, diced
1/2 c Parsley, finely chopped
1/2 c Onion, green, diced
1 ts Mint, dried, crushed
1 tb Garlic, minced
1 c Wine, white, dry
2 c Stock, chicken
2 lb Tomatoes, fresh, chopped - (@ 4 cups)
2 tb Soy sauce
1 ts Salt
1 tb Sauce, cayenne, - Louisianna Hot Sauce
1 Chicken, fryer, cooked, - deboned
Cook the chicken by boiling it in water and vegetables as you would to make a good chicken stock. When the chicken is cooked, remove the chicken from the broth, cool, and debone. Set aside the warm pieces of chicken for later in the recipe.
Strain the chicken stock and reserve.
In a large pot or Dutch oven, put the olive oil in over moderate heat, swirling to coat the bottom of the pot. Add the onions, pepper, parsley and saute for a minute with stirring.
Add diced green onion and saute for another minute.
Add mint, garlic, and white wine (the wine tends to take the bitterness out of onions, garlic, and other ingredients and takes the place of sugar for making these ingredients milder) and continue to simmer for two minutes.
Add the chicken stock, tomatoes and soy sauce and simmer for another 2 minutes.
Add a teaspoon of salt, and the Louisianna Hot Sauce (made from cayenne pepper) to taste and stir. Obviously Justin Wilson LOVES hot sauce ... and you may not. Use it as sparingly or as generously as you like.
To the hot simmering mixture, add the cooked chicken to the pot and stir occasionally while simmering ten to fifteen minutes over low heat. The chicken is already cooked, the simmering is to let the flavors merge and meld together before serving.
