    This was good, but we had to add a lot to kick it up to a good spicy creole level. I also felt it was too sweet, which was probably caused by the chili sauce, which is basically ketchup (lots of sugar) with chilies. Still tasty though. - 12/6/08

    Was ok, but won't be making again. My husband and daughter like spicy foods, but this was very bland other than being a little spicy/sweet. We ate it only so we didn't waste it. Didn't wow us in any way. - 1/10/09

    I thought this was very good! I used cajun seasoning when cooking the chicken. I guess I also gave it a little bit of a southwest twist by using tomatoes with green chili's and a little bit of cilantro. However, I thought it still had a very southern creole taste and a good kick. Thanks! - 7/10/09

    I used leftover turkey from Thanksgiving instead of the chicken and made my own chili sauce: 8 oz low sodium tomato sauce, 2 Tbsp cider vinegar, 2-3 dashes of ground cloves, garlic and onion powder to taste, 2 Tbsp of hot chili powder, and 2-3 dashes of Worcestershire sauce. It was spicy! - 12/2/09

    This was really tasty. I made a couple of substitutions (tomato puree and mild chili powder instead of the chili sauce, left out the red peppers as we're not fans of hot & spicy food) and it came out really nicely. Next time I'll add a yellow pepper too and maybe a little more chili powder. - 3/31/09

    I made this for four early to middle 20 year-olds last night (son and friends). It was perfect!
    However, I changed the mixture cooking time to 25 minutes instead of ten. I wanted the green peppers, celery, and onions to be softer.
    I can't wait to do again. It was good! - 6/14/08

    I thought this was OK. I couldn't find low-sodium chili sauce in my grocery store which was unfortunate. The regular Heinz stuff has 230mg per tablespoon which would start each serving of this recipe off at 920 mg before anything else was added. Something to consider! - 7/17/08

    What kind of chili sauce are people using, especially those that say this is bland? I used a chili garlic sauce from the ethnic foods aisle (next to the sriracha sauce) and using 1 cup of this had my eyes and lips stinging. I'm Indian, so I'm defintely used to spicy. - 11/14/09

    Is the carb / calorie count with or without the rice/pasta you put it over. Very important - I'm diabetic and need to keep close count on carbs. - 7/6/10

    Sounds like it is very good.Especially when the people add choices to make it hot and less sodium. I will be trying it.

    Making creole is a personal choice of spice....i love heat that comes to the back of throat not on the lips. I used rotel original with this....used jerk spice on the chicken before i started cooking....along with cilantro.....this recipes you can make your own by using what you have at home. - 7/4/10

    I cut out some of the spice because I'm a bit of a wimp, but the whole family loved this. Will make again. - 7/4/10
