“This was one of my FAVORITE chicken dishes growing up. We didn't have it too often, (for health reasons :) but when we did I knew it was going to be a good night! If you can't find Paul Prudhomme's "Magic Cajun Spice" you can substitute his "Magic Poultry" or even "Magic for Veal or Pork", but the Cajun seasoning gives it a good kick! Also, we much more prefer boneless skinless thighs. In our family's opinion this dish is just not as flavorful with breast meat, but I left the recipe as it was written by Paul Prudhomme.”
