We have been home cooking our dinners and the kid’s dinners for a while now. Don’t get me wrong, we have takeaways and ‘freezer’ days, but we are lucky that we both love to cook, and I really don’t mind spending an hour every afternoon cooking for us all. We also do a lot of batch cooking which is really useful for weeks where money is either a bit tight, we don’t have time to cook for whatever reason or just to use for lunches the next day!
Our most loved and favourite meals are by no means complicated! They are easy, take under 45 minutes to make and can be adapted really simply for even the fussiest of people! One of our favourite meals to have on a weekday is chicken or Quorn fajitas. I pretty much have all of the ingredients bar the tortilla wraps in the cupboards at all times so I can just grab what I need and make it.
This week however, we have teamed up with Schwartz to recreate one of our favourite meals and give it a little twist! Instead of our usual mayo-salsa combination, this time we threw in some Cajun Seasoning to our chicken (you could also use Quorn chicken pieces) and mixed it up! The Cajun seasoning is a yummy blend of chilli powder, allspice and thyme.
With a chilli rating of 3 (classed as hot) the Cajun Seasoning added a huge amount of flavour and spice to the dish without being overbearing and is something we will definitely be adding into future meals! It went really well with the cool mayo and would work really well in a number of dishes we currently cook. I’m going to try it instead of my usual Piri Piri chicken mix this week when I make chicken burgers and see if everyone prefers it!
The best thing about the Schwartz Cajun Seasoning is that it can pretty much be sprinkled over everything; fish, chicken, potatoes for some spicy wedges, pizza or something Mario does, add it to a tin of baked beans for a little fiery kick!
