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!

Jasmine - Aug 11, 2019

We liked the mash and chicken. However there was a very strange taste in both. I think it was caused by the garlic oil.

Brian - Aug 10, 2019

Tried this dish twice. Second time pan fried chicken to begin to get charred effect and finished in oven. Mash v tasty used courgette.

Natasha - Aug 09, 2019

Great flavour and filling

Miss es - Aug 06, 2019

Yuk. I love sweet potatoes, but this recipe just slaughtered the lovely otherwise taste of this veg. Cajun chicken breasts were just horrible. Could have been better possibly from the oven. This is definitely a no go recipe

Steph - Jul 30, 2019

Very yum!

Rob - Jul 30, 2019

Chicken lovely, not a fan of the courgette on the mash.

Clare - Jul 30, 2019

Was tastier the next day!! The chicken went a bit dry so would probably do thighs next time. Served the courgettes and bacon separate instead of in the mash, and used butternut squash instead of sweet potato. Good, but seemed to take multiple chopping boards and pans! Get organised before you start!!

Alexandra - Jul 30, 2019

Lovely dish! The mash and bacon worked really well.

Olga - Jul 29, 2019

Wasn’t our piece of cake.

Andy - Jul 29, 2019

Did this with some corn on the cob as a side dish. Absolutely loved it!! Possibly needed a bit more (or bigger chunks of) bacon adding to the mash.

Stephen - Jul 28, 2019

Excellent. Don’t add any oil when frying the chicken

Victoria - Jul 28, 2019

Was such a lovely and filling meal with so many flavours
