This yummy Creamy Cajun chicken recipe – Dairy and Gluten free is quick and easy to make and has become a firm favourite in our house. I found the recipe on Willcookforsmiles.com and adapted it to be dairy free.
For anyone who’s intolerant to lactose, sheep’s cheese, goat’s cheese or genuine Buffalo mozarella can often be tolerated. I just love the taste without any added cheese.
