It may not sound all that appetising, but dirty rice is a staple of Cajun cooking and it’s not hard to see why because it is absolutely delicious. There are tons of different spins on it, but it’s essentially a meaty pilaf. Add that and some cheese to a casserole dish and you’ve created a one-dish meal that the whole family will love. This version is nice and healthy because it omits the sausage and uses lean breast meat. If you’re a fan of Cajun cooking, try our Okra with Tomatoes or our Blackened Fish Fillets.

Who doesn’t like them in a fraction of the time it takes to make them?
