Cajun Blackened Chicken with Dirty Rice & Hot Sauce ~ Pecan Praline Ice Cream

Cajuns are the descendants of French settlers who made their home in Louisiana in the 1700s. Consequently, Cajun food combines the flavours and cooking methods of simple American soul food with traditional French cuisine. For example, the ‘holy trinity’ of Cajun food - onion, celery and bell pepper - is based upon the French ‘mirepoix’. Here, this holy trinity of flavours - in the form of dried onion, celery, paprika (and cayenne pepper) - is key to the Cajun rub that seasons the blackened chicken. It also makes the base of the dirty rice (traditionally cooked with chicken livers) and we’ve even made a pickle out of it! For dessert we’ve got a decadent pecan praline ice cream; the praline dates back to 17th century France but instead of the traditional almonds, the Cajuns would've used pecan nuts.
