Cajun Chicken – Juicy chicken seasoned with Cajun spices and bursting with flavor! Ready and on the table in just 20 minutes!
A few weeks ago my husband came home from a business trip raving about some sandwich he had at some restaurant in some little city in the middle of nowhere. Apparently the best sandwich ever. He described it in great detail and I took careful notes. This week I did my best to recreate it and the result was life-changing.
This life-changing sandwich, which I will share with you in the future, features cajun chicken, pepperjack cheese, and freshly sliced jalapeños. I had three within 24 hours. My husband should come back from more business trips with ideas for fantastic culinary adventures. That is his new assignment. Try new foods and bring me mouthwatering details so that I can recreate them. Genius.
In my quest to reinvent that sandwich, I created the most incredible Cajun seasoning for the chicken. I couldn’t stand to only have it on the sandwich, I needed more. So I made more seasoning, and more chicken and had a whole lot of mouthwatering Cajun chicken goodness this week. Honestly this chicken is SO good! Serve it up with limes if you want, and rice! We loved it and I plan on making it again and again at my house!
