Spiced Just Right Cajun Chicken A La Trudi

I like how versatile chicken is. You can use it so many different ways and in so many recipes, dinner options are almost endless. Ever since my husband had been trying to eat healthier (I use trying loosely because sometimes I think he's his own worst enemy when it comes to food) I've done my best to cut down on serving him any kind of red meat for dinner. We haven't completely cut it out, but I'd say he gets it once a month, if that. Instead, I've turned to making him more meals with chicken since it has fewer calories and is packed with protein. It's hard to mess up chicken, but it can be very bland if you don't season it properly. You can't just throw it on the grill or in the oven and call it a day. Well, you can if you like boring food, but with the right seasonings, your chicken can go from blah to boom! Whether you've been cooking for years or are a beginner in the kitchen, this Cajun Chicken A La Trudi recipe from Golden Blossom Honey is perfect for all cooking skill levels. 

Cajun Chicken A La Trudi

It has the perfect blend of seasonings that turn an ordinary piece of chicken into a mouthwatering delight. Don't let the long list of ingredients fool you. This dish is a snap to prepare, making it a great addition to your busy night meal plan. And, because it's baked, not fried, it's a healthier dinnertime option. To save on time, you could also use Old Bay Seasoning instead of making your own Cajun Spice, but whatever works for you works for me.

6 Tablespoons butter, melted
3 Tablespoons water
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
2-3 teaspoons Cajun spice seasoning
4 chicken breast halves, boned and skinned
cooked wild rice

Cajun Spice:
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon thyme
3/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

 What's your favorite way to incorporate chicken into your dinner menu?


  1. You did such a lovely arrangement in the plate, deary.
    My favourite way to incorporate chicken into dinner is to feed a live chicken with some grain and let it roam the yard merrily with its head on :) That being said, chickens are the ugliest of creatures, I don't know how you people can put them in your mouths :) And piggies are soo smart and cute, don't know how people can eat pork and let me not even start about beef.... cows are the cutest creatures and so are calves...

    1. I'd put the piggies over cows in the cuteness department, but they are both sweet in their own right. I need me a farm with a bunch of piggies and miniature horses. Maybe throw an elephant in there for good measure too.

    2. OMG I watched a video of a miniature baby horse being bathed in the kitchen sink yesterday at Facebook :)

  2. We have chicken in the fridge right now. If I get home, and Travis hasn't started dinner I should totally make this. It looks so good!

    1. If you end up making it, let me know how you like it :)

    2. So good, just less butter. I could go with 3 less tablespoons. Yummy though!

    1. It is one of the most loved meats among carnivores.

  4. There is so much spicy goodness going on there. The sweet and savory combo of the honey mustard sounds so perfect with the spices you chose!

  5. This looks so delicious! I love cajun food and the addition of the avocado makes it even more my jam

  6. haha calling me boring? Geez. I just chuck it in, pop it out, and eat away. Chicken wins at our sea.

  7. It sure looks lovely! I tried to cook it without seasoning for my granddaughter once, thinking she's a better bland. Yeah, that didn't fly with little missy for an instant. ;) Even with the kick in this, I bet she'd love it!

  8. He's lucky to have you to cook for him!! If I had such a good cook for me, I'd eat a lot better for sure haha...
