I used Ina Parmans Cajun Seasoning, not so long that its been available over here so I relish the opportunity to use it! Very simple, funnily enough I particularly loved the broccoli in this. Quick and easy, made a lovely dinner, thank you lazyme, made for ZWT9 Family Picks : Pink Panthers<br/><br/>(I might add I chopped up the chicken to serve)

Yum! I went light on the cajun seasoning for the kids but would keep it the same or add more next time; would also decrease the chili peppers because of increasing cajun seasoning. We love alot of sauce so I will double next time! Made for ZWT9 Gormet Goddesses.
