i used chipotle chili pepper in place of the cajun seasoning and it was fabulous!! we will be using this recipe for long time. my family loved it.

Really great chicken. I marinated overnite and grilled for a few minutes on each side. Will be making again for sure.

Awesome! I will definitely make these again. Next time I'll marinate overnight.
