  • 2 pounds of chicken
  • 4 tbsp of all-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp of butter
  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp of cajun seasoning
  • 1 tbsp of onion powder
  • 2 tsp of salt
  • 2 tsp of black pepper
  • 1 tsp of thyme
  • Canola oil


Step 1

Wash the chicken thoroughly and pat them dry, then add them to a large mixing bowl, and season them with salt, pepper, thyme, garlic powder, and onion powder. Give them a good mix until evenly coated, then place a Dutch oven or deep pan on a stove over medium heat, add some canola oil, and heat it up.

Step 2

Place the chicken in the pan, then cook them for about 4 minutes on each side or until evenly browned, remove them from the pan, and set them aside for later. Remove most of the oil from the pan leaving only about 1 tablespoon, then add the butter, and let it melt before adding the onion and celery.

Step 3

Give them a good toss and saute for about 3 minutes, then add the garlic, and continue to saute them for another minute. Add in the flour, then stir together to incorporate, and cook them until it has reached a rich brown color. Pour in the chicken broth, then season them with cajun seasoning, and give them a good mix.

Step 4

Bring it to a light simmer, then put the chicken back into the pan, and reduce the heat to medium-low allowing the chicken to cook for about 1 hour. After 1 hour, remove the lid, then let it continue to simmer for about 15 more minutes, and then serve. Enjoy!
