  • 2 tablespoons cajun seasoning 
  • 2 clove garlic minced

  • Chopped parsley for garnish 

Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill to medium high heat 
  2. Season the chicken breasts with 1 tablespoon of Cajun seasoning on both sides
  3. Grill the chicken for 6-8 minutes per side, or until it is cooked through to an internal temperature of 165°F. You can also cook the chorizo or sausage at the same time.
