Cajun Baked Chicken
Do you love Cajun seasonings? If so, you are in for a treat as Cajun Chicken is off-the-charts and out-of-the-world good.
Cajun seasoning is good on chicken, especially when we have Cajun-marinated baked chicken. Just look at the pictures, aren’t they delicious and mouthwatering?
Imagine juicy, moist chicken thighs meat with perfect char on the skin, with the heat and flavors from the Cajun seasonings. This Cajun Chicken recipe is so bomb and delicious!
How Do You Cook Cajun Chicken?
Cajun Chicken is so easy to make and you can make it in a jiffy. The active time is 10 minutes as the chicken is baked in the oven.
First you need to make the Cajun marinade with the following ingredients:
- Unsalted Butter, melted.
- Cajun Seasonings. I used McCormick Gourmet Cajun Seasonings.
- Cayenne Pepper
After that, you marinate the chicken with the Cajun mixture above and baked the chicken in the oven. Voila, and you have the best baked chicken dinner ever!
Cajun Chicken Breast vs. Cajun Chicken Thigh
When it comes to baked chicken, I always choose chicken thighs over chicken breasts. Chicken thighs are moist and tender and perfect for oven baking.
While you can use bone-in chicken thighs, or boneless and skinless chicken thighs, I am going to let you know that the best is deboned chicken thighs, with skin on.
If you love chicken breasts, you can certainly use breasts for Cajun Chicken Breasts.
How To Debone Chicken Thighs?
How do you debone chicken thighs? I have a tutorial post and video to show you how to debone bone-in and skin-on chicken thighs. Please check it out.
Trust me, this is the best for baked chicken, as the chicken meat is moist, tender and juicy, and you have the nicely charred skin on. Heavenly!
What Temperature to Bake Chicken Thighs in the Oven?
400F is the perfect temperature to bake chicken thighs. Since we have deboned the chicken, it’s easier to cook and will take a shorter time of 20-25 minutes. The length of time depends on how big your chicken thighs are.
