Cajun Chicken Sloppy Joe’s is a wonderful weeknight meal!  It’s easy to make, is done in less than 30 minutes, and is packed full of flavor.

The Cajun seasoning really bring this dish together and is a wonderful spice.  You can find it at your local Festival Foods or make a homemade version.  It pairs well with so many dishes – pasta, shrimp, steak, chicken, etc. and has a bit of a kick.  The bold, spicy flavor comes from the cayenne and the earthiness you tastes is from the herbs.  Pair the Cajun seasoning with some ground chicken, corn, onions, and melted cheese, and you have a delicious sandwich.

The recipe can be found here.

Start by preheating the oven to 250 degrees F.  This is so you can melt the cheese and toast the buns before assembly.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the ground chicken and cook to completion, making sure to break apart the chicken as it cooks.

Add the canned corn (drain the can first) and onion.  Stir to combine and continue to heat for 2-3 minutes.  I prefer the taste of white onion so that’s what I use in this recipe, but you can substitute for yellow or red onion.

Add the Cajun seasoning, onion powder, salt, and pepper.  Stir to combine.

Add the cream of chicken soup.  Stir to combine and continue to heat for 2-3 minutes.

Reduce the heat to low and add the mayonnaise.  Stir to combine and let the mixture simmer while you prepare the buns.

Place the buns, open-faced, on a baking sheet.  Add on slice of cheese to each half of the bun.  I like to use cheddar cheese, but you can use Colby jack, monetary jack, or any cheese you want.  You can even mix and match – use one slice of cheddar and one slice of muenster, for example.

Bake until the buns are toasted, and the cheese is melted, about 2-3 minutes.

Assemble each sandwich by placing a heaping scoop of the chicken mixture on top of each bun.  Place the other half of the bun on top.  Serve warm and enjoy!

Easy as that!  You have a quick meal that is sure to please your family.  You can also make the chicken mixture and portion it out into small containers to reheat and eat as is or to assemble sandwiches for lunch while at work.  Any leftovers reheat very well and tasted just as good as it did, fresh out of the skillet.

Happy Cooking!
