Recipe Notes:

  • Dish works best if thin chicken breasts are used.  If yours are normal to thick, consider slicing them lengthwise so that you have 2 pieces that are half as thick.
  • Cajun seasoning can be store bought or homemade. Find the BEST Cajun seasoning recipe here. If you are gluten free, use the homemade seasoning.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the refrigerator or in the freezer for up to a month.
  • Recipe is naturally gluten free and low carb when using homemade seasoning.  Check any products used to make sure of compliance.
