How can we make the best pan-fried, grilled and baked cajun chicken?
In this lockdown period, everybody tries to make the fried chicken and cajun chicken at home but when they attempt to infuse the restaurant-style taste, then they fail in this aspect. So today we are going to share a very special lockdown recipe for you:
So let’s begin
Which ingredients will be required for this recipe?
The following ingredients will be required for this recipe:
Ground Black Pepper
Red Pepper flakes
Which steps should you follow for cooking this special recipe?
The preparation involves the following steps:
Step 1: First of all you consider cutting the breasts of the chicken lengthwise, which means the straight breasts are to be cut. After cutting make sure you are placing them in the larger bowls.
Step 2: The second step demands you to take a small bowl and in that bowl add all the spices like paprika, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, oregano and thyme.
Step 3: The next step is responsible for the sprinkling of the cajun seasoning on the meat to make it drip water from your mouth.
If possible then you should take the help of the tongs to toss the chicken which will ensure that all the pieces of the chicken are getting evenly coated.
Step 4: Now it is your choice whether you want to grill the chicken or bake the chicken. Whichever cooking technique you want to take into account, make sure you are incorporating the steps of drizzling the oil as it will give the glazy look to your chicken.
Pan-fried Cajun Chicken
If you wish to pan fry the cajun chicken, then you are required to preheat the utensil. It is usually a large ceramic non-stick skillet. Now put some oil in it. After the oil has got heated, then add the pieces of the chicken to it and make sure you are changing the sides of the chicken as the long exposure of the heat to one side will make the chicken go blackened.
If the breast is thin, then it will take less cooking time so do not cook that for the same time as you do with the thicken chicken breasts
Baked Cajun Chicken
For making the baked cajun chicken, you initially need to preheat the oven. Once the oven is preheated, now you are supposed to arrange all the slices of the chicken in the baking dish. Once you have taken them out after they are thoroughly baled, do not immediately get them out from the baking dish. Rather you should let them rest for at the latest 10 minutes.
Grilled Cajun Chicken
For the best grilled cajun chicken, you need to preheat the grill on medium-high heat. Once the grill is preheated, then place the chicken pieces on the grill and close it with a lid so that the smoky flavour can get infused in it.
Do not overcook otherwise the burnt flavour will destroy your mood.
