Cajun Chicken with Red Pepper Sweet Potato Mash4.3/5 (BASED ON 3465 reviews)
We tested over 20 different Cajun rubs in the SimplyCook kitchen until deciding on this one! Destined to impress, the Cajun Seasoning in this kit really lives and breathes the classic flavours of Louisiana with bold notes of cayenne, paprika and coriander. The delicious Red Pepper Paste swirled through the sweet potato mash is genius! - another thanks to a Chef friend (who wishes to remain anonymous) from the deep south of the United States. That's Southern hospitality at its finest. Get your fix of spicy Cajun, comforting sweet potato, and your vitamin rich Okra from this delight of a dish, but if you can't find Okra in your supermarket, then courgette will do just fine too!

Heat the remaining GARLIC OIL in the same pan and fry the bacon for 3 mins, or until crisp.
Add the okra and fry for 2 more mins. (Courgette will need a further 2 mins.)

Mash is absolutely delicious but nowhere close to enough for two. A lot more messing about with timings than most Simply Cook recipes

A little too sweet and the garlic was over powering Certainly needed the feta to balance the overall taste

Cajun chicken was simple and delicious but think the mash would be better without the flavouring

The feta was an excellent addition. Would definitely cook this again
Becky - Nov 27, 2018
It was nice but seemed to use a lot of pans and the chicken got really badly stuck to the pan. The sweet potato mash with feta was delicious though.
Pauline - Nov 27, 2018
Claire - Nov 26, 2018
Lovely flavours, thought it was going to be abit dry but it was tasty.
Louise - Nov 26, 2018
Really tasty, bacon in mash gave it a really nice flavour
Maria - Nov 25, 2018
Tasty chicken and a nice combination of sweet and spicy for the colder months.
Charlotte - Nov 25, 2018
The red pepper sweet potato mash was totally delish! The chicken had a kick but not over the top. Defo recommend!
Michelle - Nov 24, 2018
Nice but better cooked in the oven
Donna - Nov 24, 2018
Chicken took a lot longer to cook- around 20 minutes. We left out the okra and had peas and broccoli instead. We really enjoyed this dish, the heat of the chicken and flavour of sweet potato mash. Will be having it again!
Nigel - Nov 23, 2018
An unusual combination but works really well, with just enough spice for my taste
chae - Nov 23, 2018
Not much flavour, and doesn’t have many side dishes.
Jayne - Nov 23, 2018
The sweet potato mash is the best I've ever had, I would highly recommend this dish
Charlotte - Nov 23, 2018
I’ve had this a few times now. The last time I cooked the chicken in the oven in foil. It was a lot better
Aine - Nov 20, 2018

Really nice dish
Anna - Nov 17, 2018
Lovely tasty flavours, not overly filling though.
Sarah - Nov 16, 2018
Just didn’t like it I like sweet potato mash but yeh stock didn’t improve and the spicing for the chicken was hot with balance of flavour
Jason - Nov 15, 2018
Very tasty. The chicken didn't cook all the way through in the 10-12 minutes suggested so took a bit longer to cook than advertised. That and the time to prepare the sweet potatoes. Would definitely make it again though.
Helen - Nov 14, 2018
My husband doesn't normally try anything different but I just put it in front of him and he really enjoyed it.
Robin - Nov 13, 2018
