Sempoi Cajun Chicken - My Brother's style

A simple & fast dish made by my brother, Wan. Love the full flavor of the cajun spice complemented by the sweetness of the veggies.

12 pieces cut chicken
1/2 cup Cajun spice (easily bought at any supermarket - McCormick etc)
1 medium brown onion, cut into 8 squares
1 medium green / red capsicum, cut into squares
1 large tomato, cut into 8 wedges
1 potato, thinly sliced
3 tablespoon lemon juice (can also replace with 2 tablespoon lime juice)
salt & sugar (only add if you feel you need more flavor, other wise the cajun spice is sufficient)
3-4 tablespoon oil (preferably olive oil)

- clean and wipe access water from chicken
- in a large bowl, mix chicken and veggies with cajun spice till well coated
- you can either roast in oven or pan grill
- if using oven, preheat oven 200'c
- drizzle oil all over baking / casserole dish, place chicken in dish and roast for about 40 minutes or until chicken cooked well, add veggies mid way through the roasting process 
- add lemon / lime juice just about 5 minutes before complete roasting & stir all
- if pan grill, heat oil on medium high heat and place chicken in pan turning 3-4 times
- add veggies and cover, grill about 30-35 minutes or until chicken well cooked
- add lemon / lime jucie just 5 minutes before complete cooking
- serves hot, great with rice or by itself

Happy trying... :)
