Sticky Chicken

This dish is called "sticky chicken" because it sticks to your fingers when you eat it. We don't know if it's Cajun or Creole, but it sure is good! 

Ingredients

 1⁄2 cup cooking oil
 2 cups flour for coating chicken
 1 large fryer chicken cut up
 1 cup chopped onions
 1 stalk celery, chopped
 1 cup chopped green peppers
 2 tablespoons flour
 6 cups chicken stock
 1 teaspoon salt
 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
 12 mushrooms sliced
 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
 1⁄4 teaspoon dried oregano
 1 pinch cayenne pepper

Directions

1

In a large heavy pot heat 1⁄4 inch of oil to 350°F.

2

Place flour into a paper bag. Shake each piece of chicken in flour bag very well to coat. Put chicken, skin side down in heated pot. Fry on both sides, until it just starts to brown. Remove each piece and set aside.

3

Drain fat leaving about three tablespoons. Add onions, celery, green peppers and cook until soft. Add two tablespoons flour. Cook for two minutes.

4

Lower heat. Add chicken stock and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often. Add chicken to pot. Season with salt and pepper. After 10 minutes add the mushrooms, thyme, oregano and cayenne pepper. Cook for about 30 minutes more. Be careful to not over cook the chicken as it will fall off the bones.

5

Serve with cooked rice. Yields 6 servings.

We hold onto those otherwise discarded bones for leftover turkey and sausage gumbo! Those in the know, however, know that there’s an even better–not to mention faster–way to get that rich gumbo flavor. You use a jarred roux and Blue Runner Creole Chicken and Sausage Gumbo Base. This recipe will save you the extra thirty minutes of stirring on a lazy day.
