Things I Tried From Pinterest: Cajun Chicken and Rice

I'm an avid pinner. I have too many boards and that many more pins. One of my favorite things to pin are food recipes. I found a new spin on traditional chicken and rice by making cajun chicken and rice. Check out how I made it below.


Put on about a cup of rice and bring to a boil, then cook on low heat. I used Kroger brand Jasmine rice.


After thawing and cleaning the chicken, I chopped it up  into cubes and seasoned with cajun  seasoning. I used McCormick Perfect Pinch Cajun seasoning. I fried on medium to high heat in olive oil (or use oil of your choice) until brown on both sides then set aside on a separate plate.


Next, I chopped up one onion and green bell pepper and sautéed them on high heat in the same oil I used for the chicken. I also added a little more seasoning and oil. 



Once the veggies were done, I added a can of Kroger brand diced tomatoes and green chilies and stirred. 


Next, I added the chicken to the veggie mix and stirred. Note: excuse the stove, I do not cook neatly. 


Added rice and stirred.


Fin!
