ONE PAN MEAL
This cajun chicken traybake dish is all cooked in one pan in the oven; so minimal washing up and there’s no standing over a stove mixing and stirring and as a bonus, it also means there’s minimal clean up!
We absolutely LOVE one pan and one pot meals, so much so that we have a whole category dedicated to One Pot Recipes on the blog that you can find right here!
I used chicken thighs for my recipe as I find them to be a lot more flavourful in this dish, not to mention cheaper too.
But chicken breasts would work just as well if would you prefer to use them.
You could also swap the kale for spinach and it will taste just as delicious too.
Or why not try some other root vegetables like sweet potatoes instead of the potatoes. You could even add in some nice big chunks of bell peppers.
I haven’t included measurements for the ingredients in my recipe below as quite honestly, you can put as much or as little of any of the ingredients that you like. Customise it to your own tastes so that the whole family can enjoy it!

I will be trying this one. Any chnace of your app going to android/play store?
This is my go to Wednesday recipe as we are always really rushed mid-week with school clubs and work etc so it’s great just to be able to bung in the oven while we get on with homework while it cooks.
