This is not one of my recipes. I got it from Allrecipe.com. However, I am posting it here, because miraculously, I’m not allergic to anything in it! WhooHoo!
Creole Chicken II
4 pounds chicken legs (I suggest removing the skin. Could also use thigh, breast, etc.)
¼ cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon olive oil
4 onions, chopped (I used 2)
2 cloves garlic, minced (I used jarred)
3 green bell peppers, diced (I think I used red or mixed)
8 ounces tomato paste
1 cup raisins
1 Tablespoon curry powder (I might try more next time.)
2 cups chicken stock
1 bay leaf
Salt & pepper to taste
1 Tablespooon fresh parsley
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Rinse and pat dry the chicken pieces and rub them with the brown sugar. In a large skillet, fry the chicken QUICKLY in hot oil (the sugar must not burn). When browned, remove to a 10×15 inch baking dish. (I used a 9 x13 casserole dish.)
- Saute the onions and garlic in oil until soft. Add the sweet peppers, tomato paste, raisins, curry powder, chicken stock, bay leaf, salt, black pepper and parsley. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
- Pour the sauce mixture over the chicken, cover and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove cover and bake for another 30 minutes or until tender.
