Pan Fried Cajun Chicken

Simple, flavorful and delicious chicken dish…

One of the seasonings that’s always found in my pantry is cajun seasoning. When any of my dishes taste blant, I add a few dash of cajun seasoning and it turns into a flavorful dish. Cajun seasoning is a blend of many flavorful spices and I like the instant spice kick it gives to the dishes. The other day, I made this pan fried cajun chicken. Also, sautéed onions and cherry tomatoes in the same pan after frying the chicken. A succulent chicken dish, very flavorful, aromatic and delicious.
