Cajun Fried Chicken

Cajun Fried Chicken

Making Cajun fried chicken can be a challenge — too much spice ruins it, and too little makes it bland. Over time, I have perfected it that the kids say it tastes just like Popeyes! Now THAT inspired me more.

Aside from meat dishes, the kids love fried chicken. Well, what child does not love fried chicken? I think it is the ultimate main dish of all kids. A friend of mine shared that all her daughter ever eats was fried chicken that she gets tired of cooking it. One time, she just told her daughter that the supermarket ran out of chicken! LOL

Spice Up That Chicken!

I used to just fry the chicken and give the kids some ketchup. However, I realized that it wasn’t so much fun. I’ve experimented with Lemon Chicken, Orange Chicken, and Buffalo Chicken Wings. I even tried serving the fried chicken with different dips and sides just to add variety. This time, I decided to add some spice and made Cajun Fried Chicken. As usual, it was a hit! As a tip, don’t put too much spice as it will ruin the taste. If you have children, you may want to ask them if they’d like it spicy. Otherwise, just a dash of cajun spice will do.

Let’s Have Some Cajun Fried Chicken!

This Cajun Fried Chicken will certainly spice up your meals! If you want to add more spice, you can prepare a dipping sauce made of Sriracha mayo or just store-bought sweet chili sauce. You can also mix some hot sauce with tomato ketchup. For children, you may want to serve tomato catsup, ranch dressing, or mustard-mayo as dipping sauce. Don’t forget to serve a salad for a well-balanced meal!

Enjoy! Don’t forget to share this recipe with other fried chicken lovers out there!
