3-Ingredient Sweet and Spicy Cajun Chicken – seriously THE BEST baked chicken EVER! Only 3 ingredients and ready in under 30 minutes!! Chicken, brown sugar, cajun seasoning. There are never any leftovers. We make these at least once a month. SO good! Serve over rice or potatoes for an easy weeknight meal! #easydinnerrecipes #chickenrecipes #mardigras
Mardi Gras is Tuesday. We usually celebrate at home with a cajun themed meal. This year we are having some dirty rice and this easy 3-Ingredient Sweet and Spicy Cajun Chicken. Y’all this chicken is stupid easy to make and it tastes GREAT!!! There is NO liquid in this recipe. Just the three ingredients – chicken, brown sugar and cajun seasoning. The chicken makes the liquid in the pan as it cooks.
I recommend lining your pan with aluminum foil for easy clean up. It isn’t required for the recipe, but it just helps keep all that stubborn caramelized sugar from ruining your pan.
Serve this chicken with some cajun dirty rice, white or brown rice or even some mashed potatoes. I like to serve these Creole Green Beans with the chicken and rice. The beans are super easy and are ready when the chicken comes out of the oven. Don’t forget the King Cake for dessert!!
