  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a shallow plate or bowl, mix together the flour and at least 1 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning (more if you really like the zip of Cajun seasoning!). Pour milk for dipping into a bowl and dip the chicken breasts into it. Dredge the chicken through the flour and seasoning mixture, coating evenly on both sides and around the edges.
  3. Place the chicken breasts in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes.

This recipe turned out great, very tender and full of flavor! Next time I'll probably try it in a shaking bag instead of dredging it though, as the flour and spice mix tends to clump and not cover the chicken entirely.

This chicken TASTED great but appearance-wise it could use a little help. It didn't brown up in the oven and the coating still had a very "floury" look to it. I will be making it again but I think I'll either drizzle it with olive oil before baking in the oven, or just fry it in oil or butter on the stove. I like the fact that the dish is so easy and quick to prepare but it needs a bit of tweaking.

Instead of using milk, I just sprinkled both sides with the Cajun seasoning. Very, very simple recipe. I used chicken tenders so it took very little time to cook, too. My hubby loved it!

Make the following changes for a 5 star rating: Swap panko for the flour, use an egg-milk wash, these two slight changes make ALL the difference!!!

After baking this in the oven, I fried it in sauted onion. Very good with Jamie's Black Beans and Rice (also found on

If you are looking for a healthy dinner this would be it. Not bad for a health conscious diet. Otherwise, fry that sucker up and make it fat and tasty. It is kind of bland if you follow the recipe as it is.
