Creole/Cajun Seasoning - Secret Recipe Club

Homemade Creole/Cajun Seasoning

It's Secret Recipe Club time again!  This month I was assigned Heidis Verden - a Danish cooking blog.  Heidi has tons of great recipes and mouth-watering photos.  I found so many recipes that I wanted to try, but I finally settled on this Cajun Seasoning.  I am trying to start making my own seasonings, so this was the perfect way to jumpstart that goal.

The seasoning was easy to throw together.  We used it on some grilled chicken and it tasted fantastic!  Chicken Legs couldn't get enough of the chicken.  The flavor was so good.  This will be my new "go-to" seasoning for all my cajun dishes.

Thanks for the great recipe Heidi!!  Make sure you head over to Heidis Verden and check out more of Heidi's delicious recipes!

  3. Thank you for your kind words - I'm happy you liked it. And I like that you also post a photo of the chicken you used it on! (Actually I would never had thought of using it just for chicken, but I will now).
    I just have to make one correction - I am not Dutch (from the Netherlands), but Danish (from Denmark) :-)

  4. How great to have your own seasoning mix and on the chicken it looks wonderful!

    If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my SRC recipe this month: Thin Mint Irish Coffee.
