  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp butter

  • Add chicken thighs to a bowl followed by 1 tbsp cajun seasoning, salt and pepper
  • Mix well. Set aside
  • Heat oil in a skillet then add the seasoned chicken thighs.

  • Add onions, garlic, and bell peppers to the same skillet. Stir for a few minutes
  • Add the rest of the ingredients (the leftover cajun, cayenne, turmeric, broth powder, and rice) and sautee well to dissolve bits from the bottom of the skillet
  • Add water, and arrange the sliced chicken on top of the rice. Divide the butter into a few pieces then top on the rice.
  • Bring rice to boil, reduce heat to low-medium and cover then simmer for 15-20 min until rice cooks evenly. Remove and serve. Enjoy!
