Cajun-Spiced Chicken with Wild Rice and Salsa

Yesterday evening I had a bit of a spice kick, Cajun-Spiced Chicken. I found this recipe ages ago and always meant to try it but never got around to it, and I have to say it worked out really well, the chicken was moist and the outside was golden without being burnt. I served it with a tomato and chilli salsa, wild rice and a blob of greek yoghurt. Yum!

Cajun Spiced-Chicken (from Good Food 101 Low Fat Feasts)
(Serves 4)

2 tbsp plain flour
2 tsp Cajun seasoning
4 boneless chicken breasts
2tbsp rapeseed oil

Mix together the flour, Cajun seasoning and salt.
Rub both sides of the chicken breasts with oil. Dust each side with the seasoned flour. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan.
Fry the coated chicken for 6-7 minutes each side until cooked and the skin is golden and crispy.


  1. That looks like a delicious and well-balanced meal! What spices are in cajun seasoning?

  2. I'm not sure, I have a jar of Bart's Cajun Seasoning which I use, it is really tasty. I'm sorry that I've not been very good with the adopt a blogger thing, i'm about to move house so everything is a little in panic mode, hopefully when I move next weekend things will be a bit more normal.
