Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 bunches scallions, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2c low sodium chicken broth

  1. Season chicken with salt & pepper. Heat olive oil in a large straight-sided skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, scallions, bell pepper, and garlic; cool, stirring often, until vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in cajun seasoning & cayenne pepper. Add broth, tomato paste, diced tomatoes with juice and bring to a boil.
