Cajun Chicken with Red Pepper Sweet Potato Mash4.2/5 (BASED ON 5681 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!

Boil the sweet potatoes for 15 mins, or until tender.
Fry the chicken
Heat a frying pan then cook the chicken for 5-6 mins on each side until cooked through. Remove from pan.
Prepare the garnishes
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.)
Flavour the mash
Drain and mash the sweet potatoes, then stir through the RED PEPPER STOCK.
Mix the bacon and okra into the mash.
Serve the chicken with mash and crumble some feta cheese on top (optional).
