Grilled Cajun Chicken Recipe

Our Grilled Cajun Chicken recipe isn’t a true Cajun recipe, but we do give it some heat by adding some Cayenne pepper. The chicken will develop a nice smoke, spice flavor from the marinade and the grill. It is best to marinate the chicken for up to 24-hours so that the marinade really penetrates the meat.


3-3.5 pounds of chicken
3/4 cup Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons Tabasco
4 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tablespoon onion powder
1.5 tablespoon thyme
1 teaspoon Cayenne pepper


1. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, Tabasco, garlic, onion powder, thyme and Cayenne.
2. Pat the chicken dry and add to a large Ziploc bag.
3. Add the marinade and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 24 hours.
4. Grill around 400-degrees until the breasts are at 170-degrees and dark meat is 180-degrees.

Wine Pairings:

We preface all of our wine pairing suggestions by letting you know that it’s really a matter of personal taste. While we do offer our opinions and why we selected a specific varietal, there is no right or wrong answer when pairing a wine with your dinner.

White Zinfandel

Typically with chicken you look for a lighter wine. Some people like to pair a spicy dish with a sweeter wine. We feel that a White Zinfandel is the perfect accompaniment to the spice level from this Chicken dish. While the wine does have sweet notes, it is not overly sweet. The cool temperature of the wine, level of sweetness and right amount of acidity is a perfect pair.
