Recipe: 30 Minute Cajun Chicken

Think you can’t cook? Do you watch those “30 Minute Meal” shows hoping to pick up something fast and easy? It’s true, you really can make something fast and simple in 30 minutes. I think this recipe would go great with some corn on the cob! It only takes 10 minutes to put together (It took me 7!) ans 20 minutes to bake. This is a much faster option to my previous Cajun Chicken recipe. I am loving these recipes so much for days when I don’t have a lot of time or I just don’t feel like getting into a long dinner process. My favorite part, not many dishes! I love these fast recipes because the chicken stays so moist. I hate dried out chicken.

1/2 cup Hellmann’s or Best Foods Mayonnaise
1-1/2 Tbsp. Cajun spice
1/2 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese, divided
2 Tbsp. finely chopped parsley
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 4 oz. ea.)
1/4 cup fresh bread crumbs

Combine mayonnaise, cajun spice and 1/4 cup of the cheese. Spread on chicken, then sprinkle with bread crumbs and parsley. Bake at 425°, 20 minutes or until thoroughly cooked. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; heat 1-2 minutes until cheese is melted. That’s it!

TIP: My sons found this a tad spicy so feel free to cut back on the Cajun Spice a little if you like.
