I love developing new recipes and I often take inspiration from existing ones – then switching them up to either float in a new direction, align with my preferred flavor profile – or just because I’ve got a big enough ego to think I can do it better. But in this case – there was nothing I wanted to do to improve it. This recipe for Chicken Sauce Piquant from spicysouthernkitchen.com is perfect as is. In fact, you’ll find a ton of delicious recipes there! Hey – I’m all about sharing and spreading the food love!
Sauce Piquant is a Cajun spicy, tomato-based stew and can be combined with almost any protein. This recipe called for boneless, skinless chicken thighs, but I only had breasts and they worked just fine! I also served it over mashed red potatoes and wow, it was so good! Be sure to give this one a try! And as always, you can adjust the heat to suit your own taste.
