New Orleans Style Cajun Chicken

New Orleans is famous for its seafood, gumbo and its hot cajun spice mix. In this recipe, we dry rub chicken breasts with a hot cajun spice mix cooked to tender perfection in a foil pouch with shrimp, potatoes, bell peppers, mushrooms, and onions.

Using a foil pouch this recipe is fast and easy. Everything goes in the pouch and you cook it on your grill or in your oven. 10 minutes to prep it and 30 minutes to cook it.

So give it a try and bring some southern heat to your table with this spicy one skillet chicken dinner. It’s easy to make and tasty as sin.

Beware – the cajun spice makes this chicken very hot, a tall glass of milk or a piece of bread will help cool the burn.
