I’ve served the Cajun chicken with a homemade lentil and couscous salad, you can find the recipe here.  If you’re short on time you could use a commercially prepared salad. Another time-saving side dish is sweet potato mash. I’ve given the instructions for the mash. Although its so simple, just peel and dice sweet potato and add it to the internal steaming basket whilst the chicken is cooking.

If you’re following a LCHF or Keto diet the Cajun chicken with avocado sauce is compliant with the right choice of side dish.

Avocado Cream & Cajun Chicken

Avocado Cream & Cajun Chicken

The creamy avocado sauce makes this recipe really special. The recipe was actually my dads’ and he always serves it with fish. I’ve converted the recipe for the Thermomix which means you don’t need to be concerned about the cream bowling over as it reduces or the avocado getting bitter from being added to the saucepan.

    What is it sitting on? Definitely not sweet potato mad. Confusing.

    1. Hi Anita, The Cajun Chicken is sitting on a Lentil & Couscous Salad. As I said in the story, I will be sharing that recipe next week.
