From the Test Kitchen

Zesty flavors abound in this dish thanks to the blend of Cajun spices (like paprika and cayenne pepper) we’re using to coat our chicken and spice the honey butter that’s slathered onto warm dinner rolls. A side of roasted broccoli is topped with two kinds of melty cheese for even more rich flavor.
