Hairy Bikers Cajun Spiced Chicken
« on: August 24, 2012, 18:49:36 »
Well,it had to happen,them fat blokes have dedicated some recipes to letting out Mr Thin from the fat closet.
This spice mix is one of the recipes from their New diet book that Jude got us on the Ipad,so thought id trial it today on chicken.

OK......

Cajun spice mix

5 tsp ground cumin
4 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp coursely ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp flaked sea salt


above ingredients mixed in air tight container


wrap chicken breasts in cling film and flatten to "escalope" thickness
with rolling pin.


flattened chick breasts(1.5cm).....ish


sprinkle 1 tsp of cajun spice mix over each chicken breast.


3 mins on each side,saw the chick breasts cooked through nicely.


I prepped a quick salad and served them in crispy rolls


Served it with Tzatziki dressing,the chicken was juicy  and must say their cajun mix wasnt too fiery but was a subtle warm taste blend  that I would have though not only suitable for chicken but may be tasty on pork and sea food.

Enjoyed it anyway as my first attempt at their Diet Foods.

looked nice. Now I can see that it really does look nice.  :o ;D

Definately going to give this a try, looks yummy!

I made the cassolet they did in their first show.  It was really really good, and now a family favourite :)

the cling film stops the flesh from breaking up and gives a better escallop shape
you may be a king or a little street sweeper but sooner or later you dance with de reaper.

Do a good clingfilm bash with pork loin chops, any frying beef and lamb, if so inclined too, tenderises most meats!  ;D

Might be on the me and u minus the rolls gazza this weekend.

Thank you.

Gazza, that looks so tasty and easy to do!  Even MOH has said he would like to try it !!
Question,  as it's one of the "Diet" dishes what did you fry the chicken in ?

Olive Oil is a sin I can live with but like all things just smaller quantity.

But if you dont fancy it fried...................



I Low cal Olive oil sprayed some other breasts and cooked them 170 degrees for 20 mins in the oven.

Just as tasty,and nice cold with a salad......Not allowed to use the D word...... ::)..... ;)
