Creamy Cajun spiced chicken

This recipe of creamy cajun spiced chicken is so easy and a perfect one for a summer’s evening when you, re on the go all day and want to cook up something quick, tasty and handy for tea. It’s lovely paired with rice or pasta but also works well with wedges and salad. With only a few ingredients it can be knocked up on the pan in a flash with creamy spicy flavours that won’t disappoint.

If you like your own with a bit extra spice you can buy an extra spicy Cajun spice in the Schwartz range, that’s the one I like to use but it does have a fair old kick from it  (be warned) go easy on the kids!!
