Cajun chicken succotash is reminiscent of good ole southern cooking.
This dish is simple to make, one takes one dish, and is so full of flavor you’ll barely be able to handle it.
Ok, I might be exaggerating a bit, you’ll be able to handle it, but it is really FULL of flavor. So delicious!
This recipe was inspired by a dish I had at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Mo. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a theme park with rides and all kinds of great food. The style is old west/pioneer. All the workers are dressed in hats and susenders for the guys and long dresses for the women. It’s very Little House on the Prairie and so charming. They also host the largest, faster, spinniest roller coaster to date. It was intense when we went last year.
So, anyway, they have good, ole southern home cookin’ at Silver Dollar City. Homemade fudge, spiralized fried potatoes, and this amazing chicken and pork succotash. My recipe isn’t exactly the same but it is similar and super delicious.
