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!

Shauna - Jun 15, 2019

A bit of a kick with the cajun and gor me if it was any hotter it would spoil it for me. Quick and easy to prep and cook but can't give it 5 stars as my mouth is still tingling lol

Slightly spicy but so tasty

Tina - Jun 11, 2019

Really nice, would definitely recommend using the optional feta

Alice - Jun 11, 2019

Enjoyed the meal but I think the chicken breast would be better baked rather than grilled.

Tracy - Jun 10, 2019

Great recipe very nice

Siobhan - Jun 09, 2019

Really delicious, our fave from the taster box. Only bad point is that it was a touch too spicy for us so would use less Cajun next time

Alice - Jun 09, 2019

Chicken was nice but the mash was awful. I had read others reviews saying that but figured I like all the ingredients.

Jane - Jun 09, 2019

Delicious! Looks dry, but my chicken was succulent so I didn’t find the whole dish dry at all, sweet potato mash is not at all like ordinary mash which can be dry.

Julie - Jun 08, 2019

Needs a bit more explanation as to how to cook the chicken, eg temperature to cook it at to prevent the cajun seasoning burning. Very tasty overall, quick and easy to prepare.

Haydyn - Jun 08, 2019

The bacon in the mash was strange

Jacqui - Jun 08, 2019

Chicken was lovely. Not too keen on sweet potato mash

Katie - Jun 07, 2019

We found it a bit toooo spicy it was still very tasty tho

Nicola - Jun 07, 2019


Jenny - Jun 07, 2019

Seriously... mixing Cajun cuisine with Indian okra and Mediterranean feta? It doesn’t work. I agree with another reviewer that your one pot meals are the most successful. There was no cohesion here. First disappointment.

Becci - Jun 07, 2019

Our favourite by far!

Emma - Jun 07, 2019
