This has a bit of kick even though I cut down on the spices a bit for the kid's sake. They both still ate it and liked it. My 3 year old said that it made his tongue bleed, lol. But he asked for seconds. We just made sure to serve it with milk.
Also, I didn't use the directions from the original recipe as I wanted this to be a super quick and easy recipe. I changed it up a bit to simplify.Cajun Chicken
From: Eat For Dinner
2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 Tbs. olive oil
8 Tbs. lemon juice
salt and pepper, to taste
2 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. cayenne pepper (I only used 1 tsp.)
2 tsp. dried basil
6 cloves garlic, crushed
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place chicken strips in the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
Combine all ingredients except for the chicken and rice in a small bowl. Mix well. Pour the seasoning mixture over the chicken, turning the chicken to coat. Bake for 20 minutes, turning the chicken at 10 minutes. Serve over Rice.
