Cajun Chicken Sandwiches
I got this recipe from my SIL. It looked so yummy I had to try it. And it was so easy. Being in the last several weeks of pregnancy I haven't wanted to cook very much, and so I look for easy yet still very tasty meals. This one, is definitely going on my list of things to cook again! These were a little spicy, you can put less cajun seasoning in if you wish, but my kids scarfed this down. My 4 year old kept saying, "Mommy, my mouth is stinging, but I can't stop eating, it's good!" So adjust the "spiciness" to your liking. :)
You'll Need: -4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts $2.00 -3 tbs. olive oil $.15 -2 tbs. Cajun seasoning $.25 -1/4 c. mayo $.50 -2 tsp. dill $.10 (I didn't have dill, so I substituted with thyme and it was so yummy!) -1 tsp. minced garlic $.05 (I grate mine so you don't bite on chunks of garlic, or you can use powder) -4 slices provolone cheese $.50 -4 slices tomato $.25 -Lettuce $.10 -4 hamb. buns $1.00 (I used homemade rolls and made them sliders, so for me this part was about $.25)
total: $4.15 for me. and about $4.90 for you. Not bad!
DIRECTIONS -Butterfly the chicken breasts and pound them out to be about 1/4" thick. -In a bowl mix, the cajun seasoning and the olive oil. -Baste it all over the chicken and then cook chicken on the grill or in a skillet. About 5 min. on each side or until done. -While chicken is cooking, in another bowl mix, mayo, garlic and dill. -Toast buns. Spread mayo mix on buns. -Add chicken on buns, then put cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce on top. So yummy! *I served this with homemade potato wedges and steamed broccoli.
