Cajun Lime Chicken and Peppers is a recipe you just gotta try 🙂

This one pan wonder of a meal was our dinner last night and I haven’t stopped thinking of it since.

So simple, yet insanely delicious!

One reason it’s extra juicy and flavorful is it uses boneless, skinless chicken thighs instead of breasts.

How to Make Cajun Lime Chicken and Peppers

Just trim the extra fat and cut the chicken into bite size pieces.

Then into a skillet over medium heat with some olive oil, cajun seasoning, kosher salt, and pepper.

After a few minutes, add some sliced bell peppers.

I used a red, orange, and yellow pepper to make this dish extra pretty and colorful.

When you add the peppers, also add a half cup of chicken broth.

After about 10 minutes, crank the heat up to high and add butter, lime juice, and garlic and cook a few more minutes.

Cajun Lime Chicken and Peppers was one of those rare meals that everyone in my family devoured without complaint.

And actually got quite a few compliments as well.

Gotta love a winner winner chicken dinner, right 😉

We ate every bit of this, but I feel like if you had leftovers they would make a great quesadilla filling.
