In a separate skillet add ¼ cup of vegetable oil & sauté ½ cup bell peppers, 1½ cups chopped onions, 4 cloves chopped garlic & ½ cup chopped celery. Dissolve 1 cup of Acadian Kitchens Roux (½ jar) with vegetables (note: if roux seems hard, just work it out of the jar a little at a time with a sturdy spoon).

Cook on a low boil for 45 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons of chopped green onions & cook for 15 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked. Serve over steamed rice.
