One Pot Spicy Cajun Chicken & Rice

I truly wish these pictures did this dish justice but they simply don’t. you could’t seize all the flavors and highly spiced goodness as it should be in photos and believe me, I clearly genuinely tried. this is one of those instances when you really want scent-a-vision.

Among the ease of this dish and the hundreds of exceptional duper yummy flavor, i will’t get sufficient of it. since the husband has been out of town, I’ve been consuming leftovers all week and i'm no longer complaining approximately that! I’ll take highly spiced cajun bird and rice leftovers any day!

Drizzle a massive pan or skillet (one that has a lid) with oil and cook dinner fowl breasts for about 1 minute on each facet over medium-excessive heat, just lengthy sufficient to brown each aspect of the hen. transfer to a plate.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low and add rice, peppers, chicken broth, and final 2-three teaspoons Cajun seasoning (control the spiciness with the aid of adding extra or much less seasoning) and stir to mix.
