Baked Cajun Chicken Strips

This recipe for Baked Cajun Chicken Strips is one of our favorite ways to make chicken. These are great for supper or lunch. They are also one of our favorite picnic dishes. I love to have these made up ahead of time and be able to grab them for a picnic or for some road trip food.

Use my Homemade Cajun Spice Mix for a gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free dish. Many store bought spice mixes contain ingredients that are not necessary or are allergens.

I use mayonnaise on the chicken strips to help them stay moist and tender. If you prefer, you can make your own mayonnaise from this recipe from Deep Roots at Home.

Homemade Cajun Spice Mix

One of our favorite chicken recipes is Baked Cajun Chicken Strips. They are easy to make and not only are they great for supper, but they are one of our favorite picnic foods. This Homemade Cajun Spice Mix will give you the spicy flavor you need for any recipe that calls for a Cajun seasoning mix.

Many store bought spice mixes have ingredients that say “spices” that include things that we may not want to be eating, like msg, or they have wheat or whey (dairy) in them. With that in mind, I love being able to make my own spice mixes. I can control the ingredients and how much of them go into the mix. This is especially important if you have dietary restrictions.
