Ingredients

  • Ingredients
  • * 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded to even thickness
  • * 2 cup rice (uncooked)
  • * 36oz chicken broth
  • * 3 whole bell pepper
  • * 1 package of mushrooms
  • * 2 red onions
  • * roughly chopped cilantro
  • * 4-5 teaspoons cajun seasoning, divided
  • Cajun seasoning
  • * 2 teaspoon salt
  • * 2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • * 3 teaspoon paprika
  • * 1 teaspoon pepper
  • * 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • * 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • * 1 teaspoon oregano
  • * 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Directions

  1. 1. Season chicken breasts on both sides with about 2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning. Drizzle a large pan or skillet (one that has a lid) with oil and cook chicken breasts for about 1 minute on each side over medium-high heat, just long enough to brown each side of the chicken. Transfer to a plate.
  2. 2. Saute the onions in oil until translucent. Add the mushrooms until they shrink down.
  3. 3. Reduce heat to medium-low and add rice, peppers, chicken broth, and remaining 2-3 teaspoons Cajun seasoning and stir to combine.
  4. 4. Place chicken on top of the rice, cover, and simmer for 20-25 minutes until liquid is absorbed and chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve.
