Cajun Chicken + Rice Stirfry

Hey readers! Thursday night was my nanny's last night, so I decided to cook something extra yummy! I started off following a recipe, but lack of needed ingredients called for me to give it my own touch! The black font is the original, the red are my changes! Hope you enjoy!!

Cajun Chicken with Dirty Rice

1 teaspoon dried Cajun seasoning
4 ounces chicken breast- two, medium sized chicken breast
2 teaspoons olive oil- enough to drizzle across bottom of pan
2 garlic cloves, minced- few dashes of garlic salt
1 cup chopped onion- 1/2 a regular onion chopped & half a red onion chopped
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
Few dashes Tabasco sauce, to taste- did not have, did not add. 
3/4 cup precooked brown rice- enough for two people

* I did not have recooked brown rice. So I boiled water, cooked the brown rice I had for 10 minutes, and set aside until time to add to veggie mixture!!

Make It
Sprinkle Cajun seasoning on chicken and bake or grill. Add oil to skillet; saute garlic, onion, bell pepper, tomato paste, and Tabasco for 2 to 3 minutes. Add precooked rice and saute for 5 more minutes. Serve chicken on rice.

Brands I Used:

McCormick 'Perfect Pinch' Cajun
Great Value chicken breasts 
Great Value 100% extra virgin olive oil
5th Season garlic salt (substitute for garlic cloves)
onion & green pepper from produce section
Hunt's tomato paste
Minute- Instant Whole Grain- brown rice

This made for a truly scrumptious meal! The plate photographed was mine, and I scraped it clean! Maybe because I hadn't eaten hardly anything all day, or maybe it was really freaking good! I'll make it next time on a full belly and get back to ya ;) Enjoy! This took probably 25 minutes to prepare and cook! Very quick, and fun! Be creative!!

PS: Today is the boy friend and I's fifteen month anniversary! Love you, sweetheart!♥
