Cajun Chicken Stir Fry

Here's another recipe from my MIL. Bless her heart...it was in her collection but I doubt she ever made it. But I did and it was yummy! The next time I make it I'm going to add a few shakes of red pepper flakes...but it's really good as is!!

Cajun Chicken Stir Fry

1 1/2 pounds chicken breast ~ cut into slices 1 1/2 x 3 inches
2 red bell peppers ~ cut into strips
1 large onion ~ large dice
2 - 3 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
3 - 4 cups cooked rice (I used Jasmine rice)
Salt and pepper ~ to taste

In a large bowl, add chicken. Sprinkle on the Cajun seasoning and stir. Set aside.

In a large preheated skillet or wok, drizzle some olive oil then cook chicken until done.

Remove chicken from the skillet.

Drizzle more olive oil in the skillet and cook veggies until tender-crisp. (I added a little Cajun seasoning to the veggies, as well. Totally optional.)

Add chicken back into the skillet and warm through.

Serve over rice. 

Here's the ingredients.

Cut your chicken and sprinkle 
with the Cajun seasoning.

Then brown the chicken in 
a large skillet or wok.

Cut your veggies.

Remove the cooked chicken 
from the skillet and add the veggies. Saute for a bit.

Add the chicken back to the 
skillet to warm everything through.

Serve over rice and enjoy!!!
