Roasted Cajun Chicken


There are a lot of Cajun chicken recipes on the internet but I thought I would try making up my own wet rub.  I thought the chicken turned out tasty–it was very juicy and tender. The rub was spicy and savory and I was quite happy with the results. I made some potato fries with the chicken and they were both pretty good together. I have a lot of leftover chicken so I think I will try making some chicken quesadillas out of it too.
