Cajun Seasoning is like a life saver at times. It is packed with tons of flavour and you dont have to worry about any other ingredients if you have this one. I bought a bottle of cajun seasoning during my last trip to chennai. I have made a delicious cajun chicken pasta using that. Then yesterday i thought of making a grilled chicken using that. And it turned out so juicy, i made a stir fried noodles with peas to go along with it.
