“This is another south louisiana favorite. I grew up eating this, it is delicious, everyone i cook it for always ask me to cook it for them again. it is an original recipe no can stuff added to it, it is from scratch. I suggest you to brown chicken and set aside to cool so that the bones can be removed. Also use a large cast iron dutch oven if possible.You can also use leg quarters if you would like in this recipe.”
