Cajun Chicken



I wish I had a better picture of this DELICIOUS chicken.  If you’re looking for a moist, flavorful chicken, you need this in your life.

For my Mardi Gras meal we made 220 portions of this, 42 lbs worth of chicken, and we only had 20 portions left at the end of the night.  We had 219 people check in for dinner so almost every single person tried the chicken.  Probably because it was amazing!

Everyone was talking about it.  I was so excited because this was a recipe I introduced, it wasn’t an established on in their menu system already.

  • 2 cups olive oil

  1. In a large shallow dish, mix the oil, Cajun seasoning, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and lemon juice. Place the chicken in the dish, and turn to coat with the mixture. Cover and refrigerate.  Turn every 1/2 hour.  Marinate for 3 hours.
  2. Preheat the grill for high heat.
