Kick Ass Cajun Chicken


Brythonwen

Recommended Posts

First off, make your own cajun spice:

 

1 tbsp paprika

2 1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp each onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne

3/4 tsp each white pepper, black pepper, dried thyme, oregano

 

Mix all together

 

Take some chicken leg and thigh quarters (with the skin), peel the skin back and season the meat with cajun mixture, replace skin and season the outside (top and bottom)- as much as you like

 

Bake at 450 for 45 minutes - let stand for 10 minutes and enjoy!

 

TIPS- I LOVE to add extra thyme on top of the chicken before cooking and letting the herbs (and skin) get crispy and a little blackened- OMG yum!

OoOOoh, sounds scrumptious, I'll give this a go, next time I make weekly chicken.

 

Thanks for offering up this recipe, Brythonwen !!!

Is that 1 tsp EACH of onion powder, garlic powder and cayenne? Or 1 tsp TOTAL of a mix of the three?

 

Same question for the 3/4 tsp line of ingredients :smile:

Sounds much like the one I make! Very good and I love the directions to peel the skin back and to season the meat as well as the skin! Even if you don't eat the skin, for me, it's important to cook it with it on to flavor the meat. Thank you, having it for dinner tonight. :cauldron04:
