Spicy Creole Chicken Casserole

This dish is inspired by an excellent recipe by Gran Luchito fan, Tom Parker Bowles. We’ve given the dish a nice spicy kick with the addition of our Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste. Really delicious. If you’re a fan of Chicken we highly recommend you check out our recipe for the Ultimate Chicken Burrito.

How to make it

  1. Make a roux by melting the butter in a frying pan and add the flour a spoonful at a time, whisking to a smooth consistency. Cook on a low temperature for about 20 mins, whisking continuously.
  2. Add the vegetables and stir. Cook until softened (about 10 mins), stirring continuously to avoid burning the roux. Add the Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste.
  3. Add the chicken stock, paprika and season well.
  4. Cook gently for about 25 minutes. Whilst that is cooking, make the dumplings.
  5. Mix the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a bowl. In another bowl, mix the eggs, butter (melted), parsley and milk.
  6. Combine the 2 and mix well.
  7. Flour a surface and your hands and make balls slightly larger than golf balls.
  8. Stir in the chicken to the stew, and then add the dumplings. Cook for about 10 mins.
  9. Serve in bowls with a sprinkling of parsley.
