Full of delicious, tender, spiced chicken on a bed of flavoursome rice. Creole cooking is common in New Orleans and uses herbs and spices to fuse flavours from Spanish, French and African decent.

The chicken is coated in a dry rub and then baked to keep it moist. The creole rice has herbs, spices, corn and beans. This is a great meal served with a side of flat bread.
