This Cajun Marinated BBQ Chicken recipe is an all-time favorite and the very definition of "winner winner chicken dinner"!

This Cajun Marinated BBQ Chicken recipe is an all-time favorite. The seasonings that go into this marinade just speak to my heart. You do need to plan ahead for this recipe though. It is not one of those 20 minute marinade recipes. You really need to let the chicken marinate for at least 4 hours. If you do, you WILL taste the difference. The flavors really get into the chicken and make it so juicy and tender. You are going to crave it again and again. I know we love it at our house, and everyone raves over how good it is.

Chicken is so budget friendly. We have it at least once a week in some form or another around here.  Another favorite chicken recipe at our house is this Sweet Hawaiian Crock Pot Pineapple Chicken. If you’re wanting something a little fancy, this Coq Au Vin – Chicken in Red Wine with Mushrooms Onions and Bacon, is an awesome french recipe from Julia Child.

As you can probably tell I’m a huge fan of flavor. Nothing bland is getting cooked at our house, and once you’ve been cooking a while, you can spot a recipe that just doesn’t sound like it’s going to be good enough to please your family.

So if you’re like me, and you love recipes that have that extra “Sparkle of Yum” that makes you want to share it with your friends and family; I’d like to invite you to follow along so you don’t miss a single recipe.

Now back to the food…

For a side dish I just boiled some egg noodles, tossed in a couple handfuls fresh spinach, and added a little can of mushrooms with a can of cream of mushroom soup. Stir in a half of can of milk and voila! Something quick and easy. Or toss a little side salad, that would definitely be good too.

This Cajun Marinated BBQ Chicken is the very definition of “winner winner chicken dinner”, by the way you’ll love how easy this is..
