  • Mix up your seasoning blend before adding it to the diced chicken breasts and vegetables so that everything is seasoned evenly.

    Super simple but delish recipe! I have an air fryer setting on my oven and just used that at 350 for 20 minutes. Served it over some rice with soya sauce and it was delish!

    I loved the mix of vegetables in this dish and even added some quartered mushrooms. Our only problem was the heat of the Cajun seasoning. We love Cajun seasoning, but this was downright hot. If I make this dish again I will definitely cut back the Cajun seasoning to 1 1/2 teaspoons.
