Was ok nothing special. Won't cook it again as we found it a bit on the plain side.

I adore this dish! but I wanted to ask if you can freeze it. I'm about to have a baby and want to do a bit of batch cooking this would be a great dish to keep and have at ease after a long day! I'm just never quite sure about freezing cured meat or rice?

Quick, adaptable & very tasty, I used thigh fillets in-lieu of breasts as they're less prone to be dry.

This is a great recipe, very easy but very very tasty, I never used to have any Cajun seasoning but invested in a jar for this dish alone! Make it about once a month now :)
