‘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!

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.

Glad you really enjoyed this, hope you enjoy the others just as much too!

5/5

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.

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