Cajun ( pronounced K-jun) is one of the popular styles of cooking in USA. I have seen a lot of Indians living in United States,especially people from south, shun from any non-desi recipes . Maybe the whole act of shunning has got to do with our conservative culture, but the sad part is they miss out on good tasting food from other cultures. I am no historian to summarize origins of Cajun recipes but this style of cooking originated from Acadian settlers in Louisiana,US. This recipe is a result of one dull moronic work day that pushed my limits to try something different at least in cooking. I cooked this up after improvising on Cajun recipes from other websites and I would definitely add this to the list of my signature dishes. Disclaimer : The results have been tested on a party of 20 or more people. The party lasted for more than an 2 hours after consuming the chicken .No post traumatic incidents were reported. Marinade: Pour some olive oil in a mixing bowl. Put in the breasts and mix to get a uniform coat of oil. Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning . You can be bit liberal with this. Make sure you have a uniform coat of the seasoning Sprinkle little bit of Italian seasoning . This is optional Salt as needed and black pepper per the hotness you prefer. ( For beginners, who still struggle with salt and pepper, sprinkle a layer of salt and peppers and then mix the ingredients . Taste the marinade and add salt and pepper in small increments). Squeeze half lemon and give the ingredients a good final toss. Set aside for 15 min - to 30 min in refrigerator . Take one big onion and cut it into small pieces. Cut the bell pepper into medium sized pieces. Cut the garlic pods into small pieces. Heat olive oil in a pan and fry the onions. Fry for 2 - 4 min until the onions turn light brown. Now add the garlic and pepper . Take the marinated breasts from the fridge and mix with the onions and peppers in the pan. Cover and let cook for 20 - 25 minutes. Stir occasionally to avoid the chicken getting burnt at the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with pinch of cilantro and serve hot.

I liked the recipe. It was simple and good. Would be better if the recipe text is formatted and organized.
