Cajun Chicken

Cause its winter in Australia i was looking around and found a recipe of something i havent cooked for years, the name on it was Cajun Chicken it is made with black eyed beans so you dont seem to use alot of chicken anyhow here is the recipe here I used chicken wings and you could have 1-2 wings per person which i cut in half coat the chicken with mix of:

(this coating is for around 4 pieces of chicken)
  • 1 teaspoon Chilli
  • 1 teaspoon Sweet Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Flour
to go into the pot
  • 1/2 bunch of celery
  • 2 capsicum
  • 3 onions
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 litres chicken stock
  • Tomato paste to taste
  • 450g can chopped/crushed tomato's
  • 1 bag pre-soaked black eyed beans (the suggestion on the packet is soak overnight or cook them in heated water before using for cooking)
Method Add some oil to a pot Partially cook the chicken so the coating flavour stays in the bottom of the pot, Remove chicken Put in celery, capsicum, onion and garlic cook till collapses (takes about 10-15 mins) Add tomato paste, tomato's and chicken stock simmer for awhile Add pre-cooked beans and re-add chicken Simmer for around 20-25 minutes till chicken cooked Serve
