Cajun Spiced Chicken with Bacon and Cheese!

One of our favorite sandwiches, really they're a meal on their own and you don't even need to make a side dish. If you do want one, you could always serve these with some potato wedges or fries.

I first saw this recipe on one of the blogs online and I jotted it down but completely lost the link, so if this is from your site, please let me know.

Cajun Spiced Chicken with Bacon and Cheese

You will need:
2 skinless chicken breast fillets - sliced into thinnish strips
4 rashers of streaky bacon - cut into 1 inch pieces
1 handful of grated Cheddar cheese
2 crusty baguettes

For the marinade mix together the following:

2 teaspoons of cornflour, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 2 teaspoons of Cajun spice mix.

****************************************************

Put the chicken strips into the marinade mixture for at least 15 minutes.

In the meantime, drizzle some olive oil over the baguettes or french bread and pop in the oven for about 20 minutes until nice and warm and toasty.

In a skillet, fry the bacon until cooked and almost crunchy. Remove the bacon, don't drain the drippings, you'll need it to cook the chicken.

This is not exactly a healthy recipe that's why we don't have it very often, but once in a while it's good to throw caution or diet or whatever to the wind and indulge.

Remove the bacon and set to one side. Now drain off the excess marinade from the chicken and fry the chicken in the same pan as you used for the bacon.

Just before your chicken is cooked through, put the bacon back in to heat through.

Pull the bread out of the oven and top with the chicken and bacon.

Sprinkle on the shredded cheese and pop back in the oven for about 5 minutes until it's melted and gooey. ENJOY!
