Spicy Cajun Chicken and Corn Skillet

  • Difficulty: Easy

This creamy and spicy Cajun chicken dish is very easy to put together and, though very simple to make, it is delicious and satisfying.

We like using chicken thighs, but feel free to substitute breast meat. Add more Cajun seasoning if you like things really spicy; and if you prefer, you can swap whipping cream for the coconut milk. We love using corn kernels freshly cut off the cobs, but frozen or canned are fine if that’s all you have. Serve over rice with lime wedges and enjoy!
