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!

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

Pauline - Nov 30, 2018


Gawjie - Nov 30, 2018

Easy step by step guide, can't go wrong really :)

Mathew - Nov 28, 2018

Good shit.

Kelly - Nov 28, 2018

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

Loved it

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

Not a fan

pooja - Nov 20, 2018

Hot spicy and easy to cook

Debbie - Nov 19, 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

Great flavour not sure about the Okra
