Chicken Étouffée

Straight from New Orleans, this fabulous Cajun/Creole main dish is simple, flavorful, and delicious! Chicken etouffée is a takeoff on shrimp or crawfish etouffée where the meat is "smothered" in a rich light or blond roux and served over rice.

The meal is quite easy to make.  It should take us about 45 -605 minutes, but there is some pre-work that will make preparation easy.  Below you will find the list of ingredients you will need, the utensils and what you will need to have done prior to our event.
