Cajun Chicken

Panfry spicy chicken with a crunchy coating that’s perfect on a plate with vegetables or on a bun as a sandwich.

Cajun Chicken

No Cajun seasoning on hand? Experiment with other blends and herbs, such as Italian blends, thyme or even chili powder.

Crush cereal by placing it in a plastic bag or between sheets of waxed paper and crushing with a rolling pin or a small pot. Speed through the process with a blender or food processor if available.

Have a Cajun party! Play New Orleans jazz music, and serve Cajun Chicken sprinkled with toasted pecans. Or serve with simple red beans and rice.
