Juicy Cajun chicken, tender crispy vegetables tossed in butter, and spicy Cajun Seasoning. One of the simplest chicken dinners you can make which is loaded with protein and fibre. Just a bottle of good Cajun Seasoning will do all the wonder.

I love Cajun seasoning a lot because of its smokey, rustic, and spicy flavour. Works great as a marinade and to lift up a boring dish.

What I love about this Chicken Skillet is it has tons of veggies, comes together in no time, and is packed with flavour.

Ingredients for Cajun Chicken

Let’s start with the Cajun Seasoning, which takes the dish to the next level. This smokey, spicy, and flavourful seasoning is a wonderful marinade. In fact, I love to sprinkle these on french fries too.

While it always is convenient to buy a bottle of this seasoning, I love to make my own. Bottled ones are really high on salt. When I make my own I have control over the amount of salt and also other ingredients. Here is my homemade Cajun seasoning recipe.

I have used Zucchini, Peppers, here. But you can use other vegetables like mushrooms, Broccoli, etc.

Sometimes I also like to add Onion. Don’t cook the veggies very soft and mushy, Cook until it is tender but still has a little crunch to it.

I like to serve this alongside rice. This Cajun Chicken Skillet is low carb and Keto. So if you follow low carb then have it as it is or serve it with Cauliflower rice.

Notes

  1. I use homemade Cajun Seasoning. It is mildly hot and there is no salt in it. If you are using bottled seasoning, you might have to increase or decrease the amount of seasoning depending on how spicy you prefer.
  2. Most of the bottled seasoning has salt in it, so you don’t have to add extra salt. 
  3.  Here is my homemade Cajun seasoning recipe, in case you want to give a try.

      If it is very large, then 2 chicken breasts would weigh around 500 grams. or 3 medium chicken breast.

  2. Yummy, but beware….I used Tony Chachere’s creole seasoning and my mouth is on FIRE!

    This was a very good dish. My family and I enjoyed it. I did not cook rice with it because we are on a low carb lifestyle. I did make some roasted carrots to go along side it. It was very easy and took very little time to cook. We will have this again for sure.

  6. 5 stars
    Amazing! So flavourful and quick to put together! I added some mushrooms and onions.

    This was so so good!!! I added a can of black beans to the veggies and it sort of made like a black bean sauce with the lemon juice. Will definitely make this again
