‘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!!
Absolutely stunning meal made from this kit, I'm not a fan of a lot of heat but really enjoyed the hot sauce, it was full of flavour and the heat didn't last long at all. My husband is a big chilli fan so he drowned his plate in the sauce and he was also very happy! Even the kids really enjoyed it, we used chorizo in the dirty rice which was a big winner and the chicken was sooo tasty in the lovely sauce!
Another great meal from The Spicery. Lovely Cajun chicken with a great hot sauce. Dirty rice was so tasty, can see us eating a lot of that from now on. Served with Charro Beans, Esquites and pickled red cabbage from the Taco Legend book
Absolutely loved this so much, it was reordered straight away. If it’s too hot for you, serve with a bit of creme fraiche. A real winner. Ordered a few others to try out. If they’re as good as this, every one is a winnner.
Great meal loved the flavour of the chicken and the rice was so flavoursome we used chorizo which gave it a nice smoky taste. The hot sauce added a nice punch of heat which could be adapted to the individuals taste.
Greetings from Michigan! We totally enjoyed making this Cajun Chicken with Dirty Rice for our dinner tonight! It was easy to do with a dinner kit that provided these great spices! We ate like kings before we played board games! Thank you!
I had an old recipe and used the recommendations of Paprika and Parsley with the spare chicken left from my Achari effort and some prawns. I found I needed a little more chicken so took out a pack from the freezer. It was too much so after an amazing Cajun Meal......
Made both chicken and salmon and it was enjoyed by everyone. The flavours were really good. Served it with coleslaw for added veggies, and the leftover hot sauce made for some spicy wraps the next day :o)
Excellent prompt service. Good products. Well presented. Loved the music with the Carnival box. Favourite so far is the Trinidad chicken curry.
