Cajun Breaded Chicken Chop

For anyone who knows me, I love cooking with a passion, I honestly do. But things have slightly changed now after the arrival of little tyke because he loves attention...which means I usually have no time to cook or am too tired to cook or in other words, I can't be arse about cooking. My creativity and motivation to discover new recipes have pretty much flew out the window, flushed down the toilet and said Adios bitches! to me. However, during the few rare occasion that I did managed to wander into the kitchen without carrying little tyke, a simple and very quick meal is prepared and this was one of the few recipes that popped into my head.

I think it's brilliant for anyone who wants a quick, fuss free meal. Enjoy!
