Cajun Chicken with Bell Peppers
1 teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
¼ teaspoon oregano
¼ teaspoon thyme
¼ teaspoon salt
2 bell peppers , small, thinly sliced (or use mini sweet peppers)
4 chicken breasts , small
4 cloves garlic , minced
4 oz low fat cream cheese, cold, refrigerated, and sliced into 8 slices
How to make Cajun chicken seasoning
Combine all seasoning ingredients in a small bowl. Mix to combine.
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Place thinly sliced bell peppers on the bottom of the casserole dish. Place chicken breasts on top (so that the peppers will cook underneath the chicken). Generously sprinkle Cajun seasoning all over the chicken breasts. You don’t have to use all the seasoning. Top with minced garlic. Top each chicken breast with a small amount of cream cheese. Bake the chicken uncovered at 375 F in the preheated oven for 20-30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Broil for 2 minutes, if desired. To serve, scoop the bell peppers from underneath the chicken. Place them evenly around the chicken and on top.
