Welcome to my site!
I'm Cindy, and I love to cook! And, I love to eat... hence the size of my rear end! I come from a long line of cooks. My great great Grandmother was a cook in the original Harvey Houses. My grandmother Julia was an awesome cook, and my mom was incredible. I owe my skills to these great women. Especially my Mom who said this to me about making gravy... "Cindy Lynn, wallpaper paste is wallpaper paste & gravy is gravy. Never the two shall meet!" Shall we say my first experience at making gravy left a little bit to be desired! Thank the high heavens my cooking skills have improved since then! Enjoy!

Creole Chicken

Well, with a blog name like "Gumbo Ya Ya", I guess it's about time I put a New Orleans inspired recipe on my blog. This is another "quick and easy" recipe... and it will have you in that Nawlin's mood in no time! Enjoy!

8 chicken thighs, skin removed
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 tsp olive oil
1 Tbls butter
Creole Seasoning
Salt & Pepper to taste

  1. In a non-stick skillet warm the olive oil and add the butter.
  2. When butter is melted, add the onions and then the garlic. Add salt & pepper. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Sprinkle Creole Seasoning on both sides of the chicken thighs.
  4. Add chicken thighs to skillet, right on top of the onion and garlic mixture. Cover with lid and cook for 8 minutes on first side.
  5. Remove lid; turn chicken and continue cooking for 10 minutes on second side.
  6. Make sure chicken is cooked through - remove from skillet and serve! YUM!
