Expert Tips

  • Did You Know? Andouille, a spicy smoked sausage, is often used in Cajun cooking. If you prefer a milder flavour, you can use kielbasa or any other smoked sausage for this recipe.
  • Substitution: Don't care for sausage? Omit the sausage and double the chicken, or add 1 1/2 cups cooked shrimp instead.
