Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 chicken thighs cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cups baby yellow potatoes cut into ½ inch pieces
  • ¼ red onion diced
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • 2 bell peppers sliced
  • 1 ½ cups diced tomatoes canned, include juices
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

optional

  • parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • In a large pan, heat oil over medium heat.
  • Add the chicken and cook for 5 or so minutes, until lightly browned (don't worry about cooking through). Remove from pan.
  • Add the potatoes to the pan (adding additional oil if you need).
  • Cook, stirring every 2 or so minutes for 10 minutes.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan along with the red onion, snap peas, bell peppers, diced tomatoes, cajun seasoning and salt.
  • Cover and cook, stirring every 2 minutes, for 10 more minutes. Remove lid and cook for an additional 5 minutes (keep stirring every couple of minutes).
  • Serve with freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Notes

To cook this in 30 minutes, get the chicken in the pan, then start prepping the rest of the ingredients.
This can be made with chicken breast; you may not need to add any extra oil to the pan when you add the potatoes, and you can reduce the cook time by 5 minutes.
