I had to watch this video twice in a row. The first time, because I have to listen to every word Chef John utters. The second time I watched the loop was to absolutely salivate with delight at his preparation technique. Maybe he can't sell coal to Newcastle, but who eats coal. :) He's definitely sold me on his Cajun Chicken Ragu.

OMG, this was so very very good! i used xtra bell pepper (1 each of green, red, and orage bell peppers) this has a very unique and savoy flavor, don't skip the w sauce, as chef sez. only change i made was to add about 1T of tomato paste, and i used raw bone in chicken thighs. i swear, we licked our bowls clean. beginning cooks, dont be discouraged by making the roux with the veggies in it=====it will come together, just keep stirring! this recipe is very easy, and totally worth the effort. i just served this with hot buttered white rice, and some steamed kale. thank you chef, for bringing a smile to my face with your great sense of humor and for your awesome recipe!!!!
