Creamy Cajun Chicken

Since joining Slimming World I have been enjoying a lot of my old favourite recipes in a much healthier way but I have also discovered some wonderful tasty recipes that are quite simple to make.

Here's one of my favourites: I found a similar recipe online (for the life of me I can't remember where!) but I changed it up a bit to suit my own tastes and I must say it's delicious!

Creamy Cajun Chicken & Mushroom

2x Chicken breasts, diced
Handful of mushrooms, chopped (add as many as you like, peppers would be good here too)
Cajun seasoning (as much as you like to suit your own taste)
1x Tsp Minced Garlic / 1x Crushed garlic clove (whatever is in the kitchen!)
180ml Chicken stock
2x Light Cheese Triangles
4x Tblsp Fat Free Fromage Frais

  • Cook chicken in a frying pan with some Frylight vegetable spray
  • Put chopped mushrooms into a bag, add some Cajun seasoning and shake until they are all coated
  • Add them to chicken and cook for a couple of minutes
  • Add chicken stock, garlic and Cajun seasoning, leave on a medium heat until stock has reduced by about half and chicken is cooked through
  • Add cheese triangles and keep stirring until they have dissolved
  • Take pan off the heat and stir in fromage frais until smooth and creamy, I added in a bit more seasoning here to give it an extra kick which made it quite spicy.
  • Serve - I served ours with mixed veg and potato cubes*
*Potato cubes - peel and chop potatoes, put into a bag, add sea salt and pepper and shake. Spray an oven tray with some Frylight Olive Oil spray and put the potato cubes on there, spritz some more Frylight over the potatoes before putting them in the oven for about 25min*

This is quite a runny sauce so would also be ideal with pastas or rice.

This serves too and counts for 1.5 syns or you can use the cheese as your HXA

I've made this a few times now and still haven't managed to get a picture because it's gone before I remember :)
