‘Blackening‘ is a modern technique associated with Cajun cookery and involves the caramelisation of spices on the outside of chicken or fish to provide a delicious edible crust. The chicken is served here with two Cajun staples - a fiery hot sauce and dirty rice (a delicious concoction of rice, vegetables and traditionally chicken liver or sausage).

Chicken was delicious with pan juices poured over and the squeeze of lemon added to the flavour . Dirty rice was good and super easy to make. The hot sauce was a little too spicy for us tho!!

Everything looks delicious- we love this rich and tangy dish! Sorry to hear you found the sauce a bit too spicy!


This was so tasty, I definitely recommend trying it. My husband doesn’t like things too spicy, so I mixed a bit of the hot sauce with mayonnaise for him.

Everything looks fantastic and that's a great idea using mayonnaise to cool down the sauce a bit!


Great taste. Easy to make

Excellent prompt service. Good products. Well presented. Loved the music with the Carnival box. Favourite so far is the Trinidad chicken curry.
