I’m not sure Chicken Tchoupitoulas is a particularly well known recipe but I am pretty sure you will add it to your recipe book repertoire once you have had it. I have to say it is a spectacular presentation and makes a great meal for company. The original recipe calls for brabant potatoes and I have subbed them with caramelized zucchini and as many times as I have served this recipe (with potatoes) I seriously can’t tell the difference.  You will need Sauce Béarnaise to complete the dish and please read how to do the Caramelized Zucchini  For a more authentic looking dish please see Brabant “Potatoes” made with cubed celery root.

If you look at the picture of the raw products on my cutting board these are things I do as part of Future Cooking. I have all of them on hand and it is easy to get what I need either from the freezer or the fridge. Future cooking ensures an easy dinner when you want it.

Chicken Tchoupitoulas is pretty much an all inclusive meal and served with your favorite salad should be plenty enough.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.
