Cajun Chicken Po Boy

It’s 100 degrees outside, but I’m still in the mood for something a little spicy. Last week’s cajun fries really hit a sweet spot with me, so I decided to try the same seasoning on a personal favorite, the Po Boy, and I wasn’t disappointed. Paired with lemon pepper fries and topped with provolone or pepperjack, this meal has just enough heat for a warm summer night.

Lemon Pepper Fries
