Cajun Cuisine

Cajun cuisine originates from the French-Acadian immigrants from Quebec, Canada, deported by the British in the 18-th century to Louisiana, USA.

Cajun cuisine is based on fresh and simple local ingredients and usually consists of a main dish such as meat or fish, rice and vegetables.

Cajun Chicken Breast Recipe & Mexican Rice

Ingredients: 4 chicken breasts boneless/skinless, 2 Tbsp. cajun seasoning, 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, 1 1/2 cups long grain rice, 1 tsp. chopped cilantro, 1 lime, 1 small onion, chopped, 2 cloves garlic, crushed, 1/2 cup salsa, 1/2 cup chicken stock, 1 handful green beans, salt and pepper to taste.

Recipe: Arrange the chicken breasts in a baking dish and cook them in the oven. Mix together the cajun seasoning and the flour. After removing the chicken breasts from the oven dredge them in the seasoning mix and fry them on both sides in a non-stick pan with the oil. It will take approximately 2 minutes for each side until the chicken breasts are crispy outside, but still juicy and tender inside. While the chicken breasts are baking boil the rice and strain it. Remove most of the oil from the pan where you fried the cajun-spiced chicken breasts and saute the garlic and onion for 2 minutes. Add the salsa, chicken stock, cilantro, the juice of 1 lime, the boiled rice and previously blanched green beans. Cook until the rice gets serving consistency, divide it in 4 dinner plates and serve the cajun chicken breasts on top of the rice.
