    catsoplenty's Note:

    This recipe was in a package of Perdue chicken and I've used it over and over for the past several years. It's a yummy, slightly spicy and quick way of making a great dinner. I'm posting it as written but I always end up using a bit more cajun spice. I usually just sprinkle each individual breast instead of using the measurements and rubbing them. I then use at least 1/2 t of the cajun spice in the sauce. Suggested side dish is red beans and rice. I usually use plain rice and serve the meat and "sauce" over the top of each serving. This recipe is great made with frozen chicken tenderloins. Of course I use more of them since they are smaller than a regular chicken breast. Also, if the regular breasts are extra big I pound them thinner or slice them in half to make two thin pieces.

      This is a delicious, easy recipe. I used extra cajun seasoning because we love spicy food. I used mexican style tomatoes with green chilis. I served it with brown rice and a salad. Thank you for posting!

      Thanks for making catsoplenty Recipezaar's "Chef of the Day." I needed a quick entree having on-hand ingredients, and this recipe does that and more. Easy to make and tastes delicious--the rice suggestion is right on--a great combination with the chicken and sauce. Thanks for sharing--your other recipes sound good too, and I plan on trying them!
