If you have some boneless, skinless chicken breasts that you need to use, and you want to kick it up a notch without too much of a time or labor investment, give this Cajun Chicken & Rice recipe a try. Some recipes from Louisiana and the Deep South can be real labors of love. This one is rather quick and easy, yet it still serves up plenty of good Cajun flavor. It makes for a great weeknight dinner option.
I opted to go without the cheddar cheese (which you add at the end, if using), as I wanted a bit of a cleaner, more spicy dish. If you want the dish to be a bit on the softer and creamier side, or if you just really love cheese, then you will want to include it. It’s a delicious recipe, either way – just a matter of your personal preference.
