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!

Our 25 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.

    Drizzle half of the Garlic Oil over the chicken fillets and then sprinkle over the Cajun Seasoning. Make sure they're coated on both sides then put them on a baking tray in the oven and cook for 20-25 mins, or until cooked through.

  • 2.

    Boil the sweet potato in a pot of boiling water for 15 mins, or until cooked through. While the chicken and the potatoes cook, continue with step 3.

  • 3.

    Heat the remaining Garlic Oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the bacon rashers for 3 mins, or until they crisp up.

    Add the okra and fry for 2 more mins. (Courgette will need an additional 2 mins.)

  • 4.

    Drain the sweet potato, mash it and then stir in the Red Pepper Stock.

    Add the bacon and okra to the mash and mix together.

  • 5.

    Divide the mash between 2 plates and crumble the feta cheese on top (if using). Place a piece of Cajun chicken alongside and serve.

Mash was so yummy and the Cajun spices were just right. Cooking instructions for chicken weren’t quite right though. Had to finish them off in the oven.

Really satisfying dish, the sweet potato mash with the pepper stick and crispy bacon is amazing, my only complaint is I wanted more! I did find though that the cooking time for the chicken wasn’t correct, I needed to finish it off in the oven for 10 minutes

Love the taste of the sweet potato mash with bacon & courgette. Didn’t think the chicken was anything special & a bit dry, needed a sauce in my opinion. Overall good but nothing special.
