CAJUN CHICKEN SKILLET
2 lbs chicken breast boneless, skinless
2 bell peppers 1 red, 1 green
2 tbsp cajun seasoning
2 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic pressed
1/4 cup green onion chopped
1. Chop chicken into 1 in chunks. Place in a zip top bag with 1 tbsp of olive oil and cajun seasoning. Mix the chicken until all is coated with the seasoning. Let marinate, while you chop the bell pepper into bite sized pieces.
2. Heat remaining 1 tbsp of oil in a large skillet over high heat. Once hot, add the chicken and peppers to the skillet with the chicken in a single layer. If there is too much chicken for a single layer, work in batches. Let the chicken cook on the first side for 3-4 minutes without stirring, then use tongs to flip each piece over. Cook on the second side for 2 minutes, then add the garlic, stir well, and cook for 1 additional minute or until cooked through.
3. Once the chicken is done, remove the skillet from the heat, and top the chicken with the chopped green onion.
