Cheat’s Cajun Chicken with Mushrooms

IMG_3709

We are not a very mushroom loving household, I have to admit. But when our weekly veggie box arrived with a big bag full of fresh, organic and locally grown mushrooms packed with vitamin D, we had to get creative.

And as much as I like to make my own spices combination from scratch, some days it is simply nice to not work so hard yet be able to put a decent plate of food in front of the family. So, in this recipe I have experimented with Asda’s Cajun mix. Worked really well!

This is nothing like a traditional Cajun stew that is simmered for hours with freshly ground spices but a quick and simple cheat’s recipe. Anyone with minimal cooking skills can put this one together quite impressively.

Ingredients:

2  Organic Chicken Breats (diced)

1 Onion

2-3 Garlic Cloves (grated or chopped)

200 gms of Mushrooms

1tsp Flour

3 – 4 tbsp of Cajun Mix (or to taste)

Salt to taste

1tsp Sugar

3 tsp Vegetable Oil

Method:

In a pan, heat the oil. Add onions and mushrooms. Sweat everything together for 5 minutes and then add the garlic and chicken. Once the chicken goes white from the outside, add flour and cajun spice mix, salt and sugar. Add lots of water, and once everything comes to a boil, lower the heat and simmer until nice and creamy.

Serve hot with white rice and some greens (I used fresh seasonal purple sprouts from our veggie box).

P.S: If you don’t eat meat, swap it for any vegetable(s) of your choice or some fish. Enjoy 🙂
