Instructions

Make the Mash
1
  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the potatoes.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peeling optional).
  • Add the potatoes to the boiling water and cook until fork tender, 12-18 mins. Once cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pot, off the heat.
  • Add a knob of butter and a splash of milk or water. Mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm. 
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Cook the Chicken
2
  • Meanwhile, place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the chicken. Season with salt and pepper
  • Cook until browned, shifting occasionally, 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. 
  • Once chicken is browned, add garlic and Cajun spice and fry for 1 min.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to packaging used to keep it fresh.

Finishing Touches
3
  • Stir in the passata, stock, paprika and ½ tsp sugar (double for 4p).
  • Bring to the boil, then lower the heat. Simmer until chicken is cooked through 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Stir through the creme fraiche and sun-dried tomato paste.
  • Add the spinach to the pan, a handful at a time and cook, stirring until wilted, 1-2 mins.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. Loosen the sauce with a splash of water if necessary.
Serve and Enjoy

  • When everything is ready, divide the creamy Cajun chicken between bowls.
