Cajun Citrus Chicken

Having really enjoyed the citrus chicken I did the other day, I decided to try a variation.

I first rubbed some cajun spices into some boned chicken thighs, for which I left the skin on.

Fiddes Payne Cajun SeasoningI am currently using and enjoying Fiddes Payne Cajun Seasoning, there are other seasonings available.

I then added the juice and zest of one lime and one lemon and some olive oil.

This I left to marinade for half an hour.

I heated a frying pan, and placed the chicken in skin side down, but didn’t use any oil.

I let the chicken brown, and then finished it off in the oven.

The end result was a beautiful lemon citrus chicken with a really nice cajun spicy kick to it.

I am sure you could do something similar with chilli and lemon.
