This was dull and not very flavorful.  Won't be repeated in our kitchen.

This recipe is very filling. I couldn't find the Birds Eye Pepper Stir Fry at my WalMart so I used a different one and it was okay with it. I did like the spiceyness of this recipes even without the pepper stir fry. Definetely wasn't a favorite with my 10 year old but I liked it!

I think people are confused on the term CREOLE. This is Creole not Cajun. While both cuisines rely on the culinary "holy trinity" of chopped green peppers, onions and celery, Creole cooking uses more tomatoes and the Cajun cooking uses more spices.

I made a few changes to spice it up a bit - tabasco and a bit more crushed red peppers. It still doesn't seem very creole to me but it tasted good at least.

I stuck to the instructions. This recipe had hardley any flavor what so ever. It was needs more than twice the amount of spices to make it "Creole". To me it was way too bland. I would not make it again.

This is the second time I've made this recipe. I remembered from last time that the spices listed in the recipe did not create a "deep" flavor, so I used a salt-free Cajun blend (which contained the spices in the recipe plus others) for more intense flavoring and added the salt recommended in the recipe. I used part of the salt for the recipe to salt the chicken because, initially, the chicken was a touch bland. Everything else I did according to the directions and this made a very colorful, easy dinner.

Quick and easy to make and had a very nice flavor. It was perfect with a side of rice. It's definitely a great weeknight dinner especially on a busy night. I used fresh red peppers instead of the frozen mix (didn't have it on hand). It definitely needed the onion and I will make sure I add that next time. I also think it would have added to the flavor with some fresh minced garlic.
