Cajun Chicken on Oyster Cabbage Noodles

Quick fix meal…

I love to sprinkle cajun seasonings on my dishes, it enhances the flavor of any dish instantly. I used to make baked cajun tilapia a lot and have posted the recipe for it. Last night for dinner, I had some leftover oyster cabbage noodles that I had made the previous day. Lately, I’ve been very interested in making quick fix meals and the oyster cabbage noodles is one such dish. I was so happy to have this again for last night’s dinner, but I didn’t see much excitement on my hubby’s face. To put a smile on my hubby’s face while having dinner, I decided to make cajun chicken and served it over the oyster cabbage noodles. I pan fried the chicken after marinating with cajun seasoning. Chicken tasted very delicious along with the oyster cabbage noodles.
