Cajun Stuffed Chicken Breast

I thought this Cajun stuffed chicken breast came out absolutely fantastic. Pounding the chicken out to a nice consistent thickness was a bit challenging. I’m sure with more practice I’ll have it down pat. The filling is super-simple, just a few diced and sliced vegetables and a bit of cheese. The stuffed chicken is seasoned with Cajun seasoning. Then it is browned quickly on the stovetop. Finally it’s transferred to the oven to finish the cooking. Done and yum!

Cajun Stuffed Chicken Breast

Make Your Own Seasoning

I prefer to use my own Cajun seasoning in this Cajun stuffed chicken breast and other recipes. I grind it myself so I get the consistency that I want. For this dish I ground the seasoning very fine. Of course you can use the store-bought stuff instead.

Also try my Cajun shrimp-stuffed poblano peppers and my Cajun chicken pasta.

Cajun Ground Beef Jerky on the Nesco Snackmaster Pro

I have been loving making jerky. I’ve been using ground top round for my ground beef jerky, but any lean ground meat will work. This Cajun ground beef jerky made on the Nesco Snackmaster Pro has a nice mellow spicy flavor that is definitely not overwhelming. The meat has the perfect ‘bite’, just a little tug.

The Cajun flavoring from Eastman Outdoors has a bit different flavor than the version from AC Leggs. I love them both. This one has a stronger Cajun flavor, but is less spicy than the one from AC Leggs.

Rotating The Trays Is Important

Make sure you rotate your trays every 2 hours or so when you make Cajun Ground Beef Jerky on the Nesco Snackmaster Pro. The bottom trays will not dry as quickly as those on top. Rotating the trays will give you nice, even drying and perfect jerky on every level.

Get Extra Trays To Make More Jerky

I like to load up my dehydrator. To do that I picked up a handful of extra trays. They really add a whole lot more drying space! Since I have to rotate my trays, I write a number on each one on a piece of blue painter’s tape so I can keep track of them.

Try these other great jerky flavors from Eastman Outdoors: spicy jalapenowhiskey peppermesquitesweet habanero, and hickory.

Check out my guide to using the Nesco Snackmaster Pro. You will be making fantastic jerky at home in no time at all!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place beef in a resealable bag or container.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the seasoning, curing salt and water. Pour over the meat and seal. Shake to coat.
  • Refrigerate the meat for up to 8 hours, shaking or massaging every hour or so to get the marinade distributed and absorbed evenly.
  • Remove meat from the marinade and add to a jerky gun. Squeeze out onto Nesco trays. Do not overlap meat.
  • Add the dehydrator top, set to maximum temperature setting and dehydrate for 5 hours, rotating the trays (bottom to top) every 2 hours or so.
  • To test for doneness remove a piece and let cool slightly. Try to bend the meat. If it gives and starts to tear at the bend it is done. If it bends without tearing return to the dehydrator and let it run another 15 minutes and test again. If the meat is crunchy it is overdone but still good. It’s really a personal preference as to how you like your jerky. Soft, chewy, crunchy. There’s no wrong here.
  • Let cool before storing in an airtight container.

Notes

The package for the Eastman Outdoors jerky seasoning states that it makes up to 5 pounds of jerky. I personally feel that the flavor is too mellow, so I use just about an entire package for 1 pound of jerky. I end up with a little left over seasoning, which I store in a labelled air-tight container. I’ll eventually mix it with more seasoning. I think I can get 3 pounds of well-seasoning jerky out of two packages of Eastman Outdoors mix.
This recipe is for starting with 1 pound of meat. You’ll end up with about 1/2 pound in the end. You can easily double/triple/etc this recipe for large quantities of meat, however 5-6 pounds is about all you can fit onto a Nesco Snackmaster Pro fitted with 12 trays (the unit comes with 5).

Cajun Marinated Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.

Don’t be fooled by the lightly charred chicken exterior. Inside this Cajun marinated chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy is fantastically moist, tender, flavor-packed chicken. Just like you always get when you cook chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy. Ready in less than an hour it’s perfect sliced. Perfect cubed over salads. Perfect picked up and devoured.

Cajun Marinated Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Load Up And Get To Cookin’

I used the regular ole basket that comes with the Big Easy when I made this Cajun marinated chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy. You can fit 4 decent-sized chicken breasts in the basket, but you might have to stand them on end. That’s fine. Just don’t let them touch too much or they won’t cook evenly.

The marinade is just a tad bit spicy, but even the most heat-fearing folk will like it. For something a bit more mellow, give my Big Easy Montreal chicken a try.

Cajun Shrimp-Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Wow, talk about amazingly good. The heck with the main dish, just load me up on some of these Cajun shrimp-stuffed poblano peppers. A slight kick of heat, perfect shrimp and creamy melted cheese. What’s not to love?

Cajun Shrimp-Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Substitute Bell Peppers

You could use green bell peppers instead, if you want, in these Cajun Shrimp-Stuffed Poblano Peppers. I love poblanos because they are a little spicier than a bell pepper without just completely drowning out a dish in heat.

Kick ‘Em Up

For extra kick, substitute shredded pepper jack cheese for the feta and mozzarella and add a few diced roasted jalapenos into the shrimp mixture. That’ll definitely liven up the party.

I highly recommend that you shred or grate your own cheese at home. Don’t buy the pre-shredded or pre-grated stuff. It has stuff added to it to keep it from sticking together. That ‘stuff’ affects how the cheese melts. Shred it yourself and use the good stuff.

Also try my Cajun stuffed chicken breast and my bacon cheese-stuffed peppers!

Cajun Honey Lime Wings

Visit my other site, For The Wing, for all things chicken-wing!

There’s wing sauce and there’s WING sauce. The Cajun honey lime sauce on these wings was so good that I’ll be using it on a lot more than ‘just’ wings. A little spice, a little sweet, and a little citrus, all in a thick but not gooey sauce that doesn’t just flow off your wings into the bottom of the basket. Finger-licking good, that’s for sure.

Cajun Honey Lime Wings

I used a fairly tame and not overpowering BBQ sauce when I made these Cajun honey lime wings. The flavors could easily be drowned out by an overly sweet smoky BBQ sauce. Just grab your run-of-the-mill regular ole BBQ sauce. Nothing fancy.

I store my leftover homemade sauces in squeeze bottles. If refrigerated, I set them out an hour before using so they come to room temperature. You don’t want to put cold sauce on hot wings!

I’m a big fan of Cajun-flavored or Cajun-inspired wings. Try my Cravin’ Cajun, Cajun wings with dipping sauce, and my Cajun Bay (a fantastic mix of Cajun and Old Bay seasonings!) wings.

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.

Blackened Dry Wings

Visit my other site, For The Wing, for all things chicken-wing!

I love blackened chicken. I make a mean blackened chicken alfredo dish. Being that I’ve been on a major chicken wing kick lately (ever since discovering dry wings), I wanted to  get that great blackened seasoning flavor on a wing. And I did. Oh, did I. Blackened dry wings are truly a great thing. Spicy, with hints of onion and garlic. Great eats. I found myself licking all the seasoning off my fingers and still craving more. If you haven’t tried dry wings (they are wings without any sauce) you really need to stop reading right now and make some.

Blackened Dry Wings

This is one time I was not shy with the seasoning on my wings. I usually like to be a little light, just so I can still taste the chicken. But blackened seasoning has to be over-the-top. It can’t be done lightly or there just isn’t any point to it. I love dry wings. For a another variation try my garlic Sriracha dry wings.

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.

Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.

Well, heck yeah! If you follow this blog you know I’m a huge fan of the Char-Broil Big Easy. I’m not afraid to cook anything on it, from chicken to crab. But never pork tenderloin until now. And wow, what a great job my Big Easy did (again!)! I injected the pork tenderloin with a simple Cajun butter mixture (you could use store-bought), let it get happy in the fridge for a bit, then skewered it using one of the kabob add-ons (see my Char-Broil Big Easy Add-On page) and cooked it up. It no time (really) I had a perfectly cooked Cajun pork tenderloin, all ready for slicing and eating on sliders.

Cajun Pork Tenderloin on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Go Tenderloin, Not Loin

I prefer pork tenderloin pork loin 9 times out of 10. It’s more tender and flavorful. It’s the pork equivalent of a beef tenderloin, so you know it’s the best. Like most cuts of pork it needs a little flavor boost, but I don’t go crazy with it.

Feed A Crowd

You’ll see that I had no problem fitting two 1 1/2 pound pork tenderloins into the Big Easy. I did have to cut them in half, but it was close… I probably could’ve made them fit without cutting. That means I could probably easily fit 4 (or maybe even 6) tenderloins on the Big Easy at once… enough for a crowd and then some! Note that you might want to trim the ends just a bit if they are much thinner than the rest of the tenderloin or they will be done cooking well before the rest of the meat.

For a great side dish, roast up a few red potatoes in your Big Easy.

Bayou Fried Shrimp

These Bayou fried shrimp are absolutely incredible. I’m quite sure that they are the best shrimp I’ve ever made or had. The coating is nice and light, with just a bit of crunch, and a bit of a spicy kick. The shrimp are tender, moist, and cooked perfectly. They are the perfect appetizer, but would be even more insanely good on a shrimp po boy sandwich.

Bayou Fried Shrimp

A Great Marinade And Coating

The marinade and coating mixture I used on this Bayou fried shrimp would also be fantastic on other fried seafood, from oysters to any kind of fish. It’s really great stuff, adding flavor to just about anything.

If I’m cooking for a crowd, I’ll break out my big deep fryer. But, if it’s just the two of us, I’ll fire up my Fry Daddy fryer. It’s the perfect size for both of us. It fries everything perfectly. And as an added bonus, it doesn’t use a lot of oil, which saves me money.

Also try my copycat of Applebee’s Sriracha shrimp, coconut fried shrimp, southern fried shrimp, and my copycat of Bonefish Grill’s Bang Bang shrimp. Did I mention how much I love fried shrimp? Oh yeah, my kickin’ fried shrimp are fantastic too!

Cajun Hot Dogs

Do this next time you cook up some hot dogs. Take a few hot dogs and roll them in Cajun seasoning before cooking them on the grill. Get them covered all around, end to end. That’s it. The result? Totally great tasty twists on a regular ole hot dog, Cajun hot dogs. They have a nice little flavor that makes your hot dogs different. You don’t want boring hot dogs. What’s the point of going through the trouble of cooking if all you’re going to end up with is boring?

Cajun Hot Dogs

No Ho-Hum Hot Dogs Here

These Cajun hot dogs combine great kick with cool pico de gallo. Each bite is fantastic. And the chile mayonnaise? Use it on hamburgers too or to spice up ho-hum sandwiches.

There’s no reason to have boring tasteless dogs. You have to give marinating your hot dogs a try too.

Cajun Bay Chicken Wings

Visit my other site, For The Wing, for all things chicken-wing!

A few weeks ago I made a beer-can chicken recipe that used a 50/50 combination of Cajun seasoning and Old Bay seasoning. I instantly fell in love with the combination. A little heat, a little sweet, cloves, allspice, paprika… just about all you could imagine. I knew right then and there that I wanted to use the same mix on chicken wings. And so my Cajun Bay chicken wings were born. And oh how good they were. I served them dry, not sauced. Just that great combination of Cajun and Old Bay seasonings, with a little Ranch dressing on the side for dipping. The flavor combination was fantastic, and one you will see here again soon.

Cajun Bay Chicken Wings

Once the wings are cooked, you can dust them with more of the Cajun and Old Bay mix if you want even more pronounced flavors. I skipped it since my wife isn’t quite the fan of Old Bay as I am. She doesn’t like cloves or allspice so much. That’s one nice thing about this mix. You still get those flavors, but they are toned down a bit because of the addition of the Cajun seasoning.

I’m a big fan of Cajun-flavored or Cajun-inspired wings. Try my Cravin’ Cajun and Cajun honey lime wings, and my Cajun wings with dipping sauce.

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.
