Cajun Chicken Sandwich


I'm addicted to this chicken at the moment.  Very little effort goes into making this dish....it's quick and painless.  The seasoning forms a delicious crust that pops with flavor. The seasonings can be scaled down easily for personal tastes.  I usually make sandwiches with this cajun chicken, but it would stand alone as chicken strips or nuggets too.


Cajun Chicken

1 boneless chicken breast, divided in half
1/2 tsp cajun seasoning
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp paprika

Mix all the seasonings together.  Sprinkle over top of the chicken breasts.  Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes.  Broil for the final 5 to 10 minutes of the cook time.  Serve on buns.
