    1. I made this recipe tonight, and it came out great. I took the skin off of the chicken, so it was a very healthy meal, and easy to make, too!

    2. This website is a real find! My dad is cajun, but my mom is from the north, so she doesn't know how to make many of the traditional cajun dishes I grew up eating at my Maw Maw's house. I agree about the simplicity of cajun cooking. It is hard to find a recipe that doesn't have a lot of add-ins. After getting back from a visit to my Louisiana family, I wanted to make my husband some of the wonderful dishes I ate. The fricassee is exactly like the one my aunt made for us. Thanks so much!

    3. I made this again the other night. I've been slowly introducing my new family to Cajun cooking. This was a big hit. I like to use the boneless skinless chicken thighs that come in the bulk package. These have great flavor and are easy to cook with.
