    I wish I had mentioned when I first submitted this recipe that I use a Cajun Spice Blend that I buy through Atlantic Spice Company. It's SO much more flavorful than anything you can buy at the grocery store! I buy it by the pound for around $5. I ran out of it once and tried using the store-bought kind, but ended up using the entire bottle and it STILL wasn't that flavorful! It makes a huge difference in this recipe!  -  22 May 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is one of the simplest and best tasting chicken marinades ever! I used Simple Cajun seasoning from this site, olive oil vs. vegetable (less oil than called for) pounded three chicken breasts down thin and let this marinate all day. The result was tender, moist chicken that was bursting with flavor.  -  21 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
