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!

Bit bland

Amy - Dec 03, 2019

Really tasty! Loved the addition to the mash!

Adam - Nov 28, 2019

I was really looking forward to trying this but was left completely underwhelmed by the chicken; it had a reasonable amount of heat and cooked well with a firm bite to it, however there was absolutely no depth of flavour. The sweet potato mash with okra, bacon and feta cheese was lovely though; a wonderful blend of flavour and texture. I'm not usually a huge fan of sweet potato, but with the other ingredients it wowed the palate.
