Directions

1. To make the Chicken Bites and Vegetable Skillet: In a large bowl add the chicken bites and season with salt and pepper. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and cajun seasoning and toss until coated.

2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add seasoned chicken bites and cook for about 5-7 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Remove to a plate and set aside

3. In the same skillet, stir fry the onion (add a little olive oil if needed) for 2 minutes, then add broccoli, zucchini, and bell pepper. Season with Cajun seasoning and cook on medium until vegetables are crisp-tender.

4. Deglaze with chicken stock, then add the cooked chicken bites back to the skillet and mix to combine. Garnish with red chili pepper flakes and fresh parsley if desired and serve the chicken bites and vegetables immediately. Enjoy!

Tips for the chicken and vegetable recipe

  • Work to cut the chicken into regular size pieces so it cooks evenly. And be careful not to over-cook the chicken, otherwise, it will be dry and tough.
  • Stir-fry your vegetables until tender-crisp, not too soft and mushy.
  • This chicken recipe with vegetables is all about the spicy Cajun flavors, don’t skimp on seasoning!
  • Diced boneless skinless chicken thighs will work great too. Add a few extra minutes to cook time.
  • You can blanch the broccoli florets in boiling water before throwing into the skillet if you like them more tender.

How and how long to keep the Chicken and Vegetable Skillet leftovers?

You can keep the chicken bites and veggies leftovers for up to 3 days in an airtight container stored in your refrigerator. Reheat gently in a skillet with a few drops of water to loosen the sauce.
