This is from my new favorite blog, I Breathe....I'm Hungry.  What an easy meal idea. It'll be easy to make a ton at once, too.  That's always an important thing for large families!

  • Easy Cajun Chicken

  • 5 lbs chicken parts (legs or thighs are best)
  • 2 Tbl olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Cajun seasoning 
  • Ranch dressing for serving (optional)

  •   Cajun Seasoning Blend 

  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 Tbl garlic powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • Rub the chicken with olive oil. Add Cajun seasoning and toss until chicken is fully coated. Spread the chicken out on cookie sheets with at least an inch between pieces. Bake in the center of a preheated 400 degree (F) oven for about 50 minutes (40 minutes for wings). The skin should be golden and crispy, and the juices should run clear.
