Ingredients

  • 4 thin sliced chicken breasts

  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese

Instructions

  1. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of the Cajun seasoning over the chicken breasts and rub to coat the chicken in the seasoning.

  4. Remove the chicken to a plate and set aside.
  5. Add the remaining butter to the skillet and melt.

  9. Return the chicken to the skillet and coat with the sauce.

Notes

Some Cajun seasonings are quite salty and others are not. Taste your seasoning blend and adjust accordingly. We use and love Tony's seasoning.
