Cajun Chicken with Pomegranate-Mango Chipotle Sauce

Cajun Chicken

Ok, so I tried something completely new this week.  Cajun Chicken with Pomegranate-Mango Chipotle Sauce.  When I first saw the sauce, I was skeptical.  But, it was really good!  You only need a little bit of the sauce to really get a good flavor in your chicken.  I’ve recently started broiling my chicken and I absolutely love it this way.

When I cook chicken on the grill, it would always get several charred pieces.  I know, some people like the charred pieces – especially, if you are anything like my grandmother.  I usually tell the cook that they just need to burn hers for her to be happy!  LOL

I love cooking chicken in a skillet, but it just takes sooooo long to get each piece cooked all the way through.  We all know that you can not serve raw chicken – so dangerous!  And baking my chicken… it just seems like it drys out a lot quicker and the skin doesn’t get very crispy.  So, broiling the chicken is my cooking method of choice.  I hope you enjoy this recipe!  I served mine with Creamy Mashed Potatoes and Simple Chicken Gravy.

Ingredients
  • Chicken Thighs
  • Cajun Seasoning
  • Butter
  • Pomegranate-Mango Chipotle Sauce
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to Broil
  2. Rub butter all over the outside of your chicken
  3. Top generously with your cajun seasoning
  4. Broil for 10-12 minutes per side, flipping chicken once
  5. Check the temperature on your chicken – cooking is complete when the temperature reaches 180 degrees or higher **Note** Miniumum cooking temperature for Chicken breast is 165 degrees and for Chicken thighs is 175. I like to get mine to 180, because I have little kiddos
  6. Remove from oven, and LET REST for 10 minutes. Letting the chicken rest is really important and keeps all those amazing juices inside each bite.
  7. Serve with Pomegranate-Mango Chipotle Sauce
