Cajun Style Chicken with Creole Rice (BBQ)

Submitted by sam from worthing 11 June 2009

My take on this dish (serves 4) This dish can be served immediately, or allowed to cool down, perfect for those long hot summers, or separately as part of a picnicbbq. The chicken breasts can be chopped into bite size pieces or strips, and the rice will go a long way as an accompianment. goes well in lunch boxes aswell.



FOR THE CHICKEN,,1 tbsp paprika,1/2 tsp chilli powder,4 chicken breasts (skinless),1 tbsp olive oil,,FOR THE RICE:,,1 tbsp olive oil,1 green pepper cored de-seeded and sliced into long thin strips,1 bunch salad onions sliced,2 cloves of garlic chopped,1 tsp ground cumin,1 tsp ground cinamon,250g long grain rice (i use 2 bags of uncle bens boil in bag for 10 min rice),1 x 325g tin sweetcorn (drained),1 x 410g can of red kidney beans (drained),2 tbsp fresh coriander,2 tbsp lemon juice,, ,


For the Chicken

preheat oven to 200c/gas 6. mix the spices together and toss in the chicken breasts, till they are fully coated in spice mix. Drizzle the oil over a baking sheet, add the chicken and bake for 15-17 mins (depending on your oven - till cooked).

For the Rice

Cook the rice as per instructions and cool completely in cold water. Heat oil in large pan/wok and add the pepper, cook for 5 mins, add the salad onions and cook for 2 mins, add the garlic and spices and cook for 1 min. stir in the rice, sweetcorn and kidney beans and continue to cook until warmed through thoroughly.
