Ingredients

Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast):

Directions

  1. Set a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, and add the olive oil to the pan. Season the chicken with 2 teaspoons of the Essence, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper. Place the chicken pieces in the pan and sear until well browned, about 4 to 5 minutes. Turn over and sear on the second side for an additional 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the chicken pieces from the pan and set aside. Place the sausage in the pan and cook until well caramelized, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Add the onions, peppers and celery to the pan and cook until soft, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the beans, stock, fresh thyme and bay leaf and bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cook the beans for 1 hour. Add the chicken back to the pan, and season with the remaining Essence, salt and pepper. Continue to cook the beans until they are tender, and the chicken is cooked through, about 1 hour. Stir in the chopped parsley and serve over steamed white rice.
