We love this spicy Cajun chicken sandwich! We use our homemade Cajun seasoning which has a little more kick that your traditional store bought seasonings without mounds of salt. We use boneless skinless chicken thighs in this recipe due to their tenderness and high flavor, but you can substitute chicken breast if that is what you have on hand. The end result to this recipe is a flavorful and spicy sandwich with chicken that is crispy around the edges and juicy on the inside. The spicy of the sandwich is balanced with tangy sour cream, making it a meal everyone can love!

Instructions

Recommended Pairings:

Looking for an easy side to make this a no fuss meal? Try our spicy grilled asparagus, spicy grilled potato, or our spicy grilled corn! The cook time for these is only a few minutes more, making them a set and forget side once prepped. If you are looking for something that can be done ahead of time or maybe need a break from the spiciness, a nice side salad would go well with this meal.
