Spicy Cajun Chicken Leg and Thighs and Sweet Potato Fries


This is a classic meal that the family enjoys and they are a big fan of sweet potatoes fries. In addition, they have to be fried in the deep frying pan and not roasted.

I adapted them slightly by adding the herb thyme to them. They tasted so amazing! The thyme adds another dimension to the slightly salted flavour. As well as this, I created a marinade for the Cajun chicken and left it for longer than usual. It makes a difference to the flavour.

Moreover, I managed to make a garlic mayonnaise as a dip and a salad which complementer each other. This is a great meal to have when the family come over or just a couple of you.
