EwE - It's In the Bag - Cajun Chicken with Vegetables in Foil Packets
This week's theme for Eating with Ellie is "It's in the Bag", chosen by Kayte. She spoke about parchment, but there were no parchment Ellie recipes that I could find. However, she does do a line in cooking in foil packets, which is where I went with this theme.
The only "in the bag" recipe in Weeknight Wonders has already been made by the group, so I had to look elsewhere for a recipe. I chose Ellie's Cajun Shrimp in foil packets, but substituted chicken for the prawns.
This was such a delicious dish - chicken that has been coated in cajun (creole) seasoning, poached in a foil packet in the oven with sausage (I used saucisson), chopped capsicum (peppers) and frozen vegetables (which I used instead of corn), with a "sauce" made from olive oil and white wine.
This one is a definite keeper - but I'd say that about most of Ellie's recipes.
To see what other "It's in the Bag" recipes the group made, visit the LYL section of the EwE website.
